Welcome

Our mission is to do basic research at the interface of engineering, chemistry and biology, leading to applications in medicine and technology or new ways of thinking. We focus on the nanoscale, working on nanoscale motors, biological nanofactories, and active devices and materials. We also aim to have some serious fun.
