The Cronin Group

Research in the Cronin Group is motivated by the fascination for complex chemical systems, and the desire to construct complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks.

Cronin Group researchers feature in NASA short video on Universal Life Detection

Cronin Group researchers have appeared in a short video produced by NASA, describing their work on Assembly Theory and Universal Life Detection. In the video, Prof Cronin and other researchers working on the project describe how recent work in establishing an Assembly Index for molecular complexity, and detecting it experimentally using Mass Spectrometry, could be used to construct a universal life detector, which could detect the presence of biological molecules even if they are completely unlike those on Earth.

The video can be seen on YouTube, or on the NASA website.
