During last semester our laboratory participated in a project – The Young Chemist University (pl. Uniwersytet Młodego Chemika). We invited two students – Karolina and Wojtek- from Stefan Batory Lyceum in Warsaw and Stanislaw Staszic Lyceum in Warsaw respectively. After several months we managed to present our results at a Conference of the Young Chemist University.
Congratulations to Wojtek on an award for the 2nd best poster!
Congratulations to Karolina on a Young Researcher Award in recognition of best oral presentation in 15th International Conference on Nanosciences & Nanotechnology, 3-6 July 2018, Thessaloniki, Greece.
Congratulations to Arek on an award for his presentation during 2nd Doctoral Symposium of Nanotechnology “NanoMat” in Lodz (Poland).
Congratulations to Karolina Lempicka on reception of a scholarship from Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education for Outstanding Academic Achievements! Well done Karolina.

Marie Curie Fellowship
Self-assembled soft materials such as liquid crystals and block copolymers, thanks to their extraordinary ability to assemble into ordered periodic nanostructures are an elegant realization of Feynman’s bottom-up fabrication strategy. Our group contributes to the fundamental studies of soft materials with a focus on directed self-assembly and engineering novel functional nanostructured systems. Specifically, this group will develop novel techniques for accelerated directed self-assembly (DSA) of block copolymers (BCPs), study the formation of novel, non-conventional motifs in BCPs, and exploit these systems as smart functional materials (switchable membranes for ion conduction or filtration) and synthetic templates for functional nanostructures (sensors, multi-functional catalytic materials).
