Molecular understanding for large deformations of soft bottlebrush polymer networks

We discover a new regime in which the extensibility of bottlebrush polymer networks is inversely proportional to the network stiffness.

Anomalous and heterogeneous DNA transport in biomimetic cytoskeleton networks

The cytoskeleton, a complex network of protein filaments and crosslinking proteins, dictates diverse cellular processes ranging from division to cargo transport.

About this collection

Soft Matter is proud to present this 2021 Emerging Investigators collection. This collection gathers the very best work from soft matter scientists in the early stages of their independent careers. The 2021 Soft Matter Emerging Investigators were individually nominated by members of the journal Editorial and Advisory Boards, and previous Emerging Investigators, in recognition of their potential to influence future directions in the field of soft matter.

Articles will be added to this collection as and when they are ready to be published, accompanied by an Editorial piece in the coming months.
