Prof. Bert Meijer and prof. Maarten Merkx (TU/e and ICMS) and coworkers published an article in Nature Communications, where they demonstrate the ability to control protein activity by dynamic recruitment on supramolecular polymer platforms. This work demonstrates the strength of synthetic supramolecular polymers as an ideal protein recruitment platform and shows that the assembly of […]
Professor Wilhelm Huck and coworkers (RU) recently published their work in Nature Communications. They present a method to control both the cell volume and shape of individual mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) within 3D microniches in a multitude of different geometries. These 3D microniches enable fundamental studies on the impact of biophysical cues on cell fate. […]
Professor Roeland Nolte (RU) was awarded the ‘Linstead Career Award in Phthalocyanine Chemistry’ by the Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines. The award is given every two year to highly distinguished scientists, for their quality and trajectory throughout their research life. Professor Nolte will receive the award during the International Conference on Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines (ICPP) to be held […]
Syuzanna Harutyunyan (RUG) has received a European Research Council (ERC) consolidator award of € 2 million for Lewis acid promoted copper catalysis to functionalize and dearomatize arenes. Professor Harutyunyan currently concentrates her research on the development of new and more efficient chemical processes that can be used in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical or agrochemical industries.
On November 18, 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureate, professor sir Fraser Stoddart received The Netherlands Award for Supramolecular Chemistry at the TU/e during his lecture “My Journey to Stockholm” at Studium Generale. Professort Stoddart is currently making a lecture tour through The Netherlands organized by FMS. Pictures by Satyaki Chaudhuri
FMS members prof. Bert Meijer and prof. Patricia Dankers (TU/e, ICMS) together with prof. Marileen Dogterom (TUD) discussed in a NEMO Kennislink Live edition on ‘Kunnen we voor schepper spelen? Hoe de wetenschap leven probert na te maken’. More information can be found here and the live radio podcast can be found here (in Dutch). […]
FMS staff member Tom de Greef (TU/e) and coworkers recently published their work on hierarchical control of enzymatic actuators by using DNA-based programming in Nature Communications. To date their approach shows one of the most advanced DNA-based circuits in terms of complexity and versatility.
Bert Meijer (TU/e), Patricia Dankers (TU/e) and coworkers published a review article on the advances in the field of supramolecular polymers towards multi-component biomaterials to be applied in the field of regenerative medicine.
Professor Wilhelm Huck (RU Nijmegen) was appointed as a member of the Academia Europaea, a European society of world leading scientists. More information can be found here.
