DIRECTOR: Granick, Steve Telephone : 052-217-5508

  • Profile

    Steve Granick is Founding Director of the Center for Soft and Living Matter. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Among his other major awards are APS Fellow (1992), Paris-Sciences Medal (2002), APS national Polymer Physics Prize (2009), NSF Special Creativity Award (2012), and ACS national Colloid and Surface Chemistry Prize (2013). He served as Chair of the DOE Council on Materials Panel on Polymers at Interfaces (2002) and Chair of the APS Division of Polymer Physics (2006). He holds and has held Honorary or Visiting Positions at numerous universities in Europe and Asia. 

    Before joining the IBS (Institute for Basic Science), Granick spent 30 years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), most recently as the Racheff Chair of Materials Science and Engineering, Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Professor of Physics and Biophysics.
    His education was at Princeton University (B.A. 1978) and the University of Wisconsin (Ph.D. 1982). His doctoral study was with J.D. Ferry, the most prominent polymer scientist of his generation. His postdoctoral study was with P.-G. de Gennes (Nobel Prize, 1991).

  • Group research
    The goal of this research group is to understand fundamental materials processes and to develop new ones. Work is in progress in the following areas:
    - self-assembly of novel, specially-designed colloidal particles
    - phospholipid assemblies and nanoparticle-membrane dialogue
    - polymers and related materials
    - active matter and living cells
    - properties of single molecules especially macromolecular

     
    We welcome new ideas introduced by new group members. Group members come from a variety of scientific disciplines, among them chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, chemical engineering, bioengineering, and mechanical engineering. Students and postdocs gain broad training and have many options of what to do after they leave for permanent jobs.

    Much of our research is done with unique instruments available nowhere else, especially a combination of spectroscopy, optical imaging, chemistry, and nanomechanics. This enables us to contribute to a broad range of research problems not only with implications in chemical/physical sciences but also applications from energy and environment to health.
