Soon-Hwa Jung joins NICE group as guest researcher

We are delighted to welcome Dr Soon-Hwa Jung to our group. A graduate from KAIST, she also brings over 10 years of R&D experience from LG Chem, Korea, on fluidisation, catalysis and coatings. 

We are pleased to announce that Dr Katarzyna Maksimiak has received 10 millions of allocation units on ARCHER UK National Supercomputing Service with support of the HEC Materials Chemistry Consortium ( which is funded by EPSRC (EP/L000202)) to study the mechanism between entrapped biomolecules and bio-inspired materials. 

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.
