Transforming our Understanding of Living Polymer Systems (TULiPS)

Research in this group is focused on studies related to polymers and polymer composites that occur in nature. In order to improve our understanding of these materials , including plants, proteins, cartilage, and bone, we develop many measurement tools for characterizing polymers at multiple length scales.
