What do we do...
aim to develop new materials inspired by natural occurring systems or
approaches as well as by using biological structures like proteins and viruses.
Though inspired by nature, the approach is chemistry-based in the form of
molecular modifications of protein structures but also "smart"
polymer structures are being used. The final applications of the developed
structures and systems is mostly medical oriented.
How do we do it...
The activities in the group are divided into three main
topics which give new and exciting materials and systems for biomedical applications:
I) Synthetic modifications of protein structures and
virus particles to derive new artificial assembling systems and
II) Surface structuring and modification for controlled
bio-adhesion and cellular interactions.
III) Polymeric microgels for biomedical
