On the geometry of fracture and frustration
Promotor: Prof.dr. M.L. van Hecke, Co-Promotor: Prof. dr. V. Vitelli
Kraft Lab (Self-assembly in Biological and Soft Matter)
Research in the Daniela Kraft Lab focuses on self-assembly in biological and soft matter systems, ranging from anisotropic colloidal particles to lipid membranes, emulsions, and viruses.
PLGA-based particulate vaccine delivery systems for immunotherapy of cancer
Promotores: W. Jiskoot, F. Ossendorp
Foam rheology near the jamming transition
Promotor: M.L. van Hecke, Co-Promotor: B.P. Tighe
Luca Giomi Group (Soft and Bio Mechanics)
We are interested in understanding the mechanics of soft materials, of which biological materials are prominent examples.
Fat-free mayonnaise thanks to manipulation of surface tension
Aqueous solutions of proteins and carbohydrates separate into two parts with an extremely ‘soft’ boundary surface. The surface tension between these two parts can be manipulated, for example by adjusting the pH balance. This can be used to develop emulsions of a water-based solution in another aqueous…
The Mystery of the Pointy Droplets
A certain type of oil droplets changes shape when cooled and shrunk: from spherical through icosahedral to flat hexagonal. Two competing theories couldn't fully explain this, but now, a Physical Review Letter by Ireth García-Aguilar and Luca Giomi solves the mystery.
Cancer vaccine packaged in minute particles
Leiden researchers have carried out successful tests using a new method of packaging a cancer vaccine in nano-particles. The new vaccine has induced a strong immune reaction in mice. The researchers believe that this method can make an important contribution to the treatment of cancer. Their findings…
Lorentz Professor Tom Lubensky: pioneer in soft matter
Professor Tom Lubensky from the University of Pennsylvania is visiting Leiden University as the 64th Lorentz Professor at the department of Theoretical Physics. He is a pioneer in the field of theoretical soft matter physics and winner of the prestigious Buckley Condensed Matter Prize. We spoke with…
18 Veni subsidies for Leiden, 8 for our faculty!
This year, NWO has awarded a Veni subsidy to 143 young researchers who have recently obtained their PhD. 17 of these researchers are at Leiden University and one works at the LUMC. The successful applicants will each receive 250,000 euro to develop their ideas and carry out research over a period of…
