IRG-B: Harnessing Disordered Macromolecular Structures for Living and Soft Matter

The IRG-B team is uncovering new insights into how cells use macromolecules to function, while also using these insights toward the design of new responsive materials systems with highly tunable properties. Their research is helping to lay the foundation for a new field of "living" materials science at the interface of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics — addressing the NSF's Big Idea "The Rules of Life."
