The ability of protein molecules to stick to cells is crucial for life and disease. The project is based on a novel concept to design adhesive molecules based on multivalence and entropic stabilisation.
Regular patterns, such as stripes, squares and hexagons, are ubiquitous in nature, and their formation and stability are governed by the intricate and complex interactions of symmetry and nonlinearity.
