Welcome to the Ulijn Group website. The work in our group is focused on the development of minimalistic molecular materials and systems that are inspired by biology and have unique properties, such as adaptability, molecular recognition and programmability. These properties open up exciting new applications in wide ranging areas ranging from biomedicine to nanotechnology. [Group Members and Full Biography]
Rein wins 2013 RSC Norman Heatley Award!
The Norman Heatley Award recognises and promotes the importance of inter- and multi-disciplinary research between chemistry and the life sciences.
Professor Ulijn was awarded the prize in recognition of his pioneering work on the development of molecular materials that mimic aspects of biological systems, but are much simpler.
Mischa's review article on enzyme-responsive materials has been published and made the front cover of the first issue of the new RSC journal Biomaterials Science!
