Interalia Magazine sent out a call to artists and scientists for images of their work that 'aesthetically represent the dynamics of microscopic & molecular processes'.
Some of the best images, assessed in terms of their aesthetic impact and scientific content, are by members of this department Florian, Ljiljana Fruk and Craig Russell.
Dr Ljiljana Fruk joined this department last year as a lecturer in bionanoengineering. Her group is working on design of hybrid materials for nanomedicine, development of light triggered chemistry and nanoparticle synthesis.
