Materials found in nature have a variety of properties and functions that have yet to be recapitulated in modern synthetic materials. Using semisynthetic and biologically derived macromolecules we hope to create soft materials that capture the form and function of biological tissues. The natolab will tackle this goal in three main areas: Control of topological features in soft materials to control bulk mechanical properties, the creation and design of novel living supramolecular polymerization monomers, and far-from-equilibrium materials.
