Biomaterials and Biominerals
We use simulations to explore the interface between molecules and material systems. This interface controls many of the processes in living organisms, materials fouling and the spread of infection by germs. These simulations examine: how nature produces shells, bones and teeth and how we can replicate these processes; how cells and bacteria are able to bind to surfaces and form biofilms; the structure of molecular systems – such as monolayers and proteins.
