Coacervates and Soft Interfaces

Radboud University

Institute for Molecules and Materials

Welcome to the Spruijt Lab

We aim to create artificial organelles that can be used as functional compartments in synthetic cells or as model systems to elucidate the role of coacervates  in cells and in the origin of life.
We are currently investigating various (bio)chemical reactions to create, shape and grow these organelles in a dynamic way. In parallel, we use the compartments to direct reactions and regulate biological assembly processes.
