Front cover image of our recently discovered tripeptide emulsifiers. In this paper, we describe a new way to create emulsions with tunable properties, based on very simple biological molecules, as published in the journal Advanced Materials. In collaboration with Tell Tuttle's lab, we used a combination of experiments and simulations to show that dramatically variable oil-in-water emulsions may be produced from tripeptides.
