A multidisciplinary and creative research environment is formed by combining groups with a broad knowledge of physical and chemical materials science as well as biology and molecular engineering to understand and develop new concepts for materials and programmable systems.
The core of HYBER is formed by 4 PIs with groups of:
- Molecular Materials Academy Professor Olli Ikkala (Director of the HYBER), Aalto University
- Biomolecular materials Professor Markus Linder (Vice-Director of the HYBER), Aalto University
- Bio-based Colloids and Materials, Professor Orlando Rojas, Aalto University
- VTT Industrial Biotechnology Professor Merja Penttilä, VTT
In addition, there are several supporting research groups in HYBER. Visit the Groups page for more information!
