Synthesis, Assembly and Fabrication of Molecular Materials for Technology and Medicine Using Genetically Engineered Solid-Binding Peptides
- The “life” in organisms is due to the specific molecular interactions of proteins, called molecular recognition, that leads to a self-assembly and a large diversity of functions in biology;
- Emulating biology, in Molecular Biomimetics, GEMSEC is developing novel protocols towards materials and systems based on proteins, engineered in our labs;
- GEPI, Genetically engineered peptides for inorganics, are as building blocks; synthesizers, erectors, and assemblers, in forming functional molecular materials for implementation in a broad range of fields from nanotechnology to molecular medicine.
- Molecular Biomimetics, through this MRSEC, is an emerging multidisciplinary research area
