Towards new discovery in Polymer chemistry

Welcome to the Willcock polymer group, based in the Materials Department at Loughborough University. Our research focuses on tuning the properties of polymers by controlling their architecture and morphology, with a particular focus on stimuli responsive materials. 

We currently have seven postgraduate students and a postdoctoral research assistant in the group. If you are interested in joining the Willcock group please contact Helen for an informal discussion about opportunities, or if you would like to apply for external funding to join the group. We are always looking for keen scientists to join the team!
