Dr. Rein V. Ulijn
Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Nanoscience Initiative
CUNY Advanced Science Research Center
The Ulijn group are interested in the development of materials and systems that mimic biology’s adaptive properties but are much simpler. These materials (including gels, emulsions, structured surfaces and nanotubes) have potential applications in health care, cosmetics, lifestyle products, food science. These applications are sought in active collaboration with researchers and companies across the globe. The approach is cross-disciplinary and covers the entire range from fundamental understanding to eventual applications and societal benefit.
