The Directed Assembly Network

Bringing scientists, engineers, researchers and industry together

The Directed Assembly Network

a community driven, leading edge Network

With over 1,000 academic and industrial members including: Chemists, biologists, physicists, materials scientists, biochemists, chemical engineers, mathematicians, social scientists and more. We are looking towards tackling the grand challenges facing science over the next 5-50 years

We aim to gain unprecedented control of the assembly of molecules and structures that are the building blocks of many functional materials, consumer and industrial products. The methods our members develop will enable the production of new materials at length scales from the nano to the everyday.

These materials will have major impact in areas of societal importance such as personalised healthcare and food production, transport systems and fuel production, housing construction and consumer electronics.
