How to knit a gel?

Together with Maarten Smulders from ORC we often look at how the molecular composition of (hydro)gels can be tuned in order to arrive at and understand the mechanical behavior of gels. Such projects involve customized rheology experiments and ample synthesis; the former is evidently the expertise of the SMM group. Also other work on hydrogels is possible, perhaps in collaboration with Jasper or Renko from PCC.
