HYBER – The Academy of Finland's Centre of Excellence
Our aim is to develop a fundamental understanding of how self-assembled multicomponent materials of the future can be designed and produced by using biological starting materials, based on plant cell wall structures and designed biological macromolecules.
The new BioGarage at Aalto Design Factory offers students, researchers and startups the opportunity to test wild ideas and experiment freely using synthetic biology and related technologies in a GMO-lab environment.
How to produce new types of silk-like materials in the context of synthetic biology
Nantech 2019 workshop at Aalto University campus
HYBER Symposia are annual events that bring together experts from HYBER-related research areas from all around the world.
This invited lecture, hosted by Aalto Distinguished Professor Olli Ikkala, is entitled: From new dynamically self-assembling materials to chemical reactivities in confined environments
