New paper in Chemical Society Reviews

Our recent manuscript, “Soft Materials as Biological and Artificial Membranes”, is published on Chemical Society Reviews. The past few decades have seen emerging growth in the field of soft materials for synthetic biology. This review focuses on soft materials involved in biological and artificial membranes. The membranes discussed here are those involved in the structure and function of cells and organelles. The illustration is a conceptual scheme of artificial membranes synthesized by human-made hydrophilic and hydrophobic soft materials. Congratulations to the team!
