Join us in a workshop organized by @NatureComms and @Materials_MRS on Advances in Materials and Manufacturing https://www.mrs.org/workshop-on-advances-in-materials-and-manufacturing where Christopher explores 'Wavelength Orthogonal, Synergistic and Antagonistic Photochemical Materials Design' @QUT @QUTmaterials @Cluster3DMM2O

We turned our attention once more to dynamic photochemistry with hydrogels, this time exploring wavelength orthogonal stiffening with visible light, just out in @angew_chem https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/anie.202113076 Brilliant work by @VinhXTruong and Julian @QUTmaterials @QUT @KITKarlsruhe

Australia's reputation on the international stage is once more at risk. No funding agency in a well-functioning democracy allows for ministerial interference on the expert selection of grant outcomes for political gain, personal belief or voter pleasing.
