“Almost all aspects of life are engineered at the molecular level, and without understanding molecules we can only have a sketchy understanding of life itself”
Francis Crick (1988)
The SupraBioNano resreach group is glad to announce its 1st School of Supramolecular and Bio-Nanomaterials!
The field of supramolecular systems and bio-nanomaterials is both timely and highly interdisciplinary and this School wishes to foster a collaborative, multidisciplinary, and dynamic “playground” for presenting and discussing the most recent research results in field of supramolecular chemistry and self-assembled materials.
This School aims to provide a research-led overview of the current state-of-the-art in self-assembly phenomena, applied supramolecular chemistry, and bio-nanomaterials. Taking inspiration from Nature, the attendees will be guided through all aspects of chemistry underpinning the formation of hierarchical structures and complex functionalities.
The School is designed for PhD students, Post-Docs, and young scientists with various fields of interest, who aim at mastering the phenomena associated with molecular recognition and self-assembly, and the design and preparation of functional molecules and materials for a wide-range of high-end applications. During an intense training week the attendees will learn how to design and develop functional materials through the combination and assembly of organic, inorganic, coordination, biological molecules, and higher-level building units.
