2022 AAAS fellows

Advanced Polymers and Biomaterials

Biological interfaces with controlled properties

Biological systems are sensitive to surface properties such as chemical, geometry and topological properties.

To achieve control over interactions at the interface of biological systems and their environment, the development of materials in which individual properties can be manipulated at the micro-and nanometer scale is of great importance.

The department of Advanced Polymers and Biomaterials focuses on the targeted synthesis of such materials through manipulation of chemical and physical methods and the study of these materials in biological systems.
