Research in our group is devoted to the synthesis, characterization and biological application of supramolecular materials. Our aim is to solve challenging interdisciplinary problems in health by developing functional materials based on (bio)organic molecules and polymers that can respond to, detect or instruct biological matter.
We’re looking for a PhD candidate for a new and exciting project to develop nucleic acid cross-linked hydrogels.
Interested or know someone that is? Look in the Leiden University vacancies website to apply.
Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the magazine of the American Chemical Society, recognized Roxanne Kieltyka as one of their Talented 12.
