Welcome to the Van Lehn Group!
We are a group in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We develop and apply molecular simulation methods to characterize, predict, and engineer the physicochemical properties of synthetic and biological soft materials. We broadly seek to uncover relationships between nanoscale properties and macroscopic behavior in order to inform materials design, and particularly focus on understanding interactions at complex, multicomponent interfaces. We study a range of systems, including nanoparticles, peptides, surfactants, and polymers, for applications in drug delivery, biosensing, molecular recognition, catalysis, and self-assembly.
Two graduate students earned nice honors recently: Samartha received a graduate student travel award for the Biophysical Society annual meeting and Jonathan was awarded the PPG Fellowship in CBE. Congratulations to you both!December 13, 2019
Herry Jin won poster prizes at AIChE: 1st place in Microbes at Biomedical Interfaces and 2nd place in the General Poster session. Bravo Herry!November 27, 2019
Amy Qin and Panzheng (Pan) Zhou have joined the group as new graduate students. Welcome to the group, Amy and Pan!November 27, 2019
