Who we are

We work as biological “tailors” combining four groups working on molecular self-assembly, genetic engineering of proteins, biotechnical production of engineered biomolecules, and plant cell wall materials.

Research

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.

Bacterial bandages and recycled fibres: Aalto brings a materials revolution to Slush

New materials play an important role in sustainable development and combatting climate change. New uses for old materials can also be a major industrial opportunity: for example, the value of biomass from forests in Finland can be doubled if used for manufacturing products of higher added value.
