he Collaborative Research Center “Functional Microgels and Microgel Systems,” a collaboration with Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and DWI Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials, will continue to receive funding from the German Research Foundation, DFG, for another 4-year period.The CRC is concerned with developing bio-inspired microgels with useful functionalities for new applications, such as in the field of catalysis, targeted drug delivery within the body, and treatment of intestinal disorders. The CRC, established in 2012, is coordinated by Professor Walter Richtering, head of the RWTH Institute of Physical Chemistry.
