At the Molecular Photonics group at chemistry department of the UvA the research group led by Prof. dr. Wybren Jan Buma investigates the fundamentals of how photoactive compounds that are employed in sunscreens dissipate the energy of UV photons, thereby paving the way for a potentially game-changing approach for the rational development of sunscreens. He is looking for partnerships to incorporate research into products.
