Our research is focused on the design, synthesis, characterization and possible applications of new supramolecular systems with unconventional properties and functions. By combining principles of synthetic and physical organic chemistry with challenges in materials and life sciences, we study the self-assembly and self-organization of molecular architectures into functional supramolecular systems.
On February 27 & 28 we had the Meijerlab Reunion, to celebrate Bert's birthday and to look back on 30 years of research of the group in Eindhoven. The scientific program with an overview of all speakers can be found here.
- Congratulations to Dr. Tobias Schnitzer for being awarded both ETH medal for outstanding doctoral thesis and Nachwuchspreis 2020 of the Max-Bergmann Kreis for his PhD thesis "Proline-rich Peptides – From Catalysts to Metal Organic Frameworks".
- On the occasion of his royal distinction, an interview with Bert Meijer in the Cursor about his love for molecules and his career at TU/e. Een interview met Bert Meijer in de Cursor over zijn liefde voor moleculen en zijn carrière bij de TU/e, ter ere van zijn koninklijke onderscheiding.
- Congratulations to Dr. Beatrice Adelizzi, a former PhD student of the Meijer group, who was awarded a Rubicon grant for her research 'Giving voices to living matter'. She will continue her research as a postdoctoral fellow at École Normale Supérieure in Paris.
- What do molecular structures and sheet music have in common? Bert Meijer explains this interesting similarity in an interview in New Scientist.
- The Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry invites you to celebrate the anniversaries of the dedicated editors Craig J. Hawker and E. W. “Bert” Meijer. Feel free to read the anniversary tribute!
