Chirality 2023 Rome

It has been a wonderful time in Rome. We had the opportunity to share our latest findings in the topology of the α-helix. Rebeca and Jose did an amazing job in the poster session. It is always a pleasure to meet the chirality community!

Tenure Track Award

Julian has been awarded with a Ramón y Cajal Fellowship that will allow the development of independent research lines based on peptide self-assembly. We thank Agencia Estatal de Investigación.

Our research about mechanical properties of soft-nanomaterials as been published in Chemistry of Materials

We compare in this study the mechanical properties at the nanoscale of three different nanospherical materials. We could observe by AFM-QNM interesting mechanical properties inherited from their different synthetic procedures. Congratulation Ernesto for this nice study!!

Unfortunately this time our proposal for the cover art was not selected.

Visit to Birmingham University

In the frame of our shared Royal Society Grant, I had the opportunity to visit our collaborator Paco Fernandez-Trillo labs and get to know the amazing research that this great team does. Moreover, I delivered a talk about our last findings in thermoresponsive materials for biomedical applications.
