Vilmali Lopez Mejias

Heterogeneous nucleation mechanisms

Assistant Professor of Chemistry

University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras

Email: vilmali.lopez@upr.edu

Research Interest: Our research is focused in understanding heterogeneous nucleation mechanisms in order to control crystallization outcomes of industrially relevant materials. Our group works to design heteronucleation platforms and apply these in three major crystallization efforts: to gain understanding of the fundamental factors that affect nucleation in molecular compounds, to promote or inhibit heterogeneous nucleation, and to access, stabilize and deliver solid-forms for novel applications.

Marcus Weck

Organic and Polymer

Chemistry

Professor of Chemistry

Email: mw125@nyu.edu

Research Interest: The main focus of the research carried out in my group is the development of complex polymeric materials. Our synthetic approaches are motivated by Nature's design principles that rely on weak and reversible interactions between building blocks to introduce function and diversity. In particular, we are interested in the synthesis of multifunctional polymers either via side- or end-group functionalization and the use of oligopeptides for molecular tectonics.

Jin Montclare

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Associate Professor of Chemistry

Email: montclare@nyu.edu

Research Interest: Broadly, our lab is focused on engineering macromolecules. The long-term goal of our lab research is to be able to predictably design or engineer artificial therapeutics, biocatalysts, scaffolds and cells. We seek to provide biologically inspired solutions to address the challenges of human disorder treatment and medicine, sustainable energy and environmental remediation.

Alexander G. Shtukenberg

Crystallography, Crystal Growth, and Defects in Crystals

Research Professor, Molecular Design Institute

Email: as5243@nyu.edu

Research Interest: Basic crystal growth from various media with the emphasis on crystallization from solutions in the presence of additives and impurities. This includes crystal structure modifications, analysis of phase equilibria, growth kinetics, incorporation, and creation of defects for different types of additives ranging from ions and molecules to macromolecules and macroscopic particles. Another direction of my research is related to polymorphism and phase transformations in molecular crystals.
