Welcome to the complex fluids group at Brandeis University where the groups of Profs. Zvonimir Dogic, Seth Fraden, W. Benjamin Rogers and Guillaume Duclos study various phenomena in soft condensed matter physics and biophysics including liquid crystals,  self-assembly, microfluidics, protein crystallization and numerous other topics.

We are members of the Brandeis Physics department. There are extensive collaborations with Condensed Matter Theory Group at Brandeis and faculty from other departments including Biology, Chemistry and Computer Science which are supported by the Brandeis Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC). There are also many external collaborations at local, national and international level.
