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.

Assembly Theory Features in Scientific American

Assembly theory - a theory being developed by the Cronin group along with international collaborators - has been featured in the February 2023 edition of Scientific American. The article, “Life as We Don’t Know It”, explores how living systems on other worlds could work in very different ways from life on Earth. Assembly theory has been developed to distinguish living from non-living systems based on their complexity, and is agnostic to the specific molecules and structures involved, and so could be used to identify life in completely unfamiliar contexts.

The article can be viewed on the Scientific American website
