Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop a totally new approach for the realization of self-repairable and self-assemble machines. We literally aim at making "living LEGO". Inspired by biomolecules self-assemble into 3D structure, and there are merely 20 types of amino acids (building components), the project will develop robotic molecules that interact and spontaneously form a higher dimensional structure. Likewise other programs in our group, this program addresses the principle, design, and implementation of developed mechanisms.

Funding Notes

Applicants can apply for a Scholarship from the University of Sheffield but should note that competition for these Scholarships is highly competitive. it will be possible to make Scholarship applications from the Autumn with a strict deadline in late January. Specific information is available at:
