Department of Nanobiotechnology

Research activities at the Department of Nanobiotechnology are focussed on molecular nanotechnology, nanobiotechnology, biomimetics, synthetic biology and biophysics. Biological principles, chemical processes and physical principles are combined in a transdisciplinary approach to obtain molecular building blocks and structures with novel properties. The human and infrastructure resources of the DNBT make it a centre of competence for biologically inspired functional surface and materials. Our research balances fundamental knowledge generation with focussed development and optimization of nanotechnologies for biological applications.
