Mission

To develop the next frontier in soft materials relevant to energy challenges by designing structures that emulate functions we see in biological systems. CBES tackles the challenge of encoding synthetic soft materials with the ability to transduce energy forms and move autonomously in ways that are characteristic of “living matter”.
