NICE group presents at the UCL Cross-Disciplinary Network on Soft Materials

Michele Soft 3

From the NICE group, Dr Ayomi Perera, and PhD students Nidhi Kapil and Michele Lynch, presented their research in the 1st Meeting of the UCL Cross-Disciplinary Network on Soft Materials. The meeting took place on Monday 19th June at UCL. It aimed to bring together researchers that are interested in soft materials, ranging from fundamental science to practical applications in order to create a community for further interaction and knowledge exchange.


Michele Lynch was awarded the best poster prize. Congratulations Michele!



She will use ARCHER supercomputer for 6 months to study behavior of biomolecules confined in ordered amorphous silica through all-atom molecular dynamic simulations with explicit water and counter-ions.The simulations will provide a better understanding of the interplay between the adsorbed proteins and mesoporous materials which is necessary to improve drug delivery systems by improving stability and controlled release of the active drug at the site of interest.
