Selected Publications from our group
Here you can view a representative group of our most recent publications. The research lines within the systems chemistry department range from synthetic organic chemistry for developing tools to construct supramolecular and polymer architectures, their self assembly and self-organisation into systems that carry out autonomous and responsive tasks and the application of these nano-machines and nano-motors in the field of next generation medicines and nano medicines. The wilson group focusses on the emergence of function in supramolecular motile systems. The Kouwer group focusses on responsive networks in molecular materials. The Neumann group employs macro molecular approaches to drug delivery in nano-medicine.

Daniela Wilson (1978, Comanesti, Romania) received her BSc in Chemistry and Physics in 2001, and her MSc in Environmental Chemistry in 2003 from Al. I. Cuza University of Iasi (Romania). In 2007 she obtained her PhD summa cum laude from the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iasi on research into the relationship between structure and properties in mesogenic systems (liquid crystals).As an Exchange PhD student, she stayed at the Himeji Institute of Technology, Japan, (2003-2004), as EU Marie Curie Fellow (2004-2005) and as a guest researcher (2006-2007) at the University of Hull, UK. She worked as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA (2007 - 2010) and in 2010 she became a researcher at the Radboud University Institute for Molecules and Materials. She is a visiting lecturer (honorary position) at the Gheorghe Asachi University of Iasi.
Daniela Wilson received a large number of scholarships and honors, such as the Nano-Micro Letters Researcher Award 2016 for research excellence in the field of nano- and micro- science, Aspasia 2016 by NWO, Nanoscience Award 2015, the Athena Prize of NWO (2015) for Excellence Female Chemists, an ERC Starting Grant for her self-assembly nanorakets research (2012) and a Vidi grant from NWO in 2015 for translating the nanomotor research into the clinic; the use of locomotive self-assembled carriers for targeted drug delivery and diagnostics.
