This is the website of PaNGOLin: Planet Nursery Group Observatory Leiden, a collaborative group of astronomers at Leiden Observatory and SRON working on various aspects of planet formation. This group was founded in September 2021 by Nienke van der Marel and consists of experts on protoplanetary disks, exoplanets, exoplanet atmospheres, planet formation, in observations, instrumentation and modeling. Together we aim to connect our research fields to enhance our understanding of planet formation, through regular meetings and discussions.
