The NanoBioSeparations Group is a transdisciplinary team that creates barriers for separations and sensing by combinining synthetic membranes with emerging materials and biomolecules.

The apparent aim is to develop tunable, highly-selective and versatile interfaces; the underlying driving force is to understand intertactions between molecules and ultimately the concept of selectivity.
