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.

Lee Cronin to host Zoominar on ‘Inorganic Biology & Artificial Life’ on Tuesday 7th April starting at 15:30 UK BST

How did life start on Earth? Does alien life exist elsewhere in the Universe? And can we make life in the laboratory that is both chemically and causally separate to the last universal common ancestor on Earth?

In this zoominar I will discuss how my team are trying to make Alien detection systems and create life in the laboratory from scratch.
