Colloidosomes are robust, versatile microcapsules that have emerged as promising candidates for protocell models. Read our just published review that highlights the role of organic chemistry in the engineering of colloidosomes with life-like behaviours, such as selective membrane permeability, adhesion, chemical signalling, dynamic multi-compartmentalisation, replication, and predation.
Our RSC Soft Matter article is now published. The work describes the validation of a new method for the automated analysis of thousands of indentation curves for the 3D mapping of the mechanical properties of soft materials. The work was carried out in collaboration with Dr. Sebastien Rochat and Prof. Richard Trask at the University of Bristol, and funded by the EU Marie Curie Actions and the UK's EPSRC.
Prof. Paolo Tecilla and Dr. Pierangelo Gobbo awarded prestigious national awards for Organic Chemistry from the Italian Chemical Society.
The Gobbo Group is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with experience in the development of microfluidic platforms for the fabrication of water-in-oil microdroplets and multiple emulsions.
Groundbreaking research programme on machine learning-assisted polymer design is taking off thanks to Jean Golding Institute £5k seed grant.
