Welcome to the DNA-Robotics blog

We’d like to tell you what we’re doing. You may know that we’re  working on creating nanorobots using DNA technology. But you may not know what it is like to be a PhD student within a cross-European network working on interdisciplinary projects. Therefore, we’ve created this blog to give you, our readers, a glimpse of the life as a PhD student.

15 PhD students will be part of DNA-Robotics and they will take turns in writing  posts for this blog. The format is completely free. You may find blog posts about the ups and down of being a PhD student, moving to a new country and experiencing a new research culture, posts about the perspectives of our research, or about science politics.

We expect the blog to start during autumn 2018. So stay tuned and see what shows up with regular intervals.


The DNA-Robotics consortium (formerly DNABOT) receives funding from the European Commission

On 2 May 2017 the DNA-Robotics consortium (formerly DNABOT) was happy to receive very positive feedback from the European Commission and was invited for Grant Agreement preparations.
