Soft Materials


UCL Soft Materials Network

Welcome to the UCL Cross-Disciplinary Soft Materials Network. We are a new initiative on campus and provide a platform for UCL researchers that are interested in soft materials, ranging from fundamental science to practical applications. 

Our members come from over 20 different departments and institutes across the university, including the Faculties of Brain Sciences, Built Environment, Engineering Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Medical Sciences. 

Soft materials show great promise to develop future advanced functional materials for applications in healthcare, energy, communications and information storage. The UCL Cross-disciplinary Network on Soft Materials exists to provide a contact point describing the main themes and facilities for soft materials research at UCL and to facilitate the exchange of ideas and approaches between researchers in different fields.
