Prof. Dr. Scheibel, Thomas
Dr. Salehi, Sahar
Working group Salehi focuses on developing and combining advanced biomaterials with microfabrication techniques. Designing and application of micro and nano features have been evaluated to engineer complex and functional tissue constructs. The modified structures will show improved physical, mechanical and biological properties.
Dr. Humenik, Martin
Application of the self-assembly principles to control nano- and micro scaled structuring of biomaterials is in focus of our group. Examples of our research comprise DNA-protein hybrid constructs based on recombinant spider silk and specifically designed nucleic acid sequences, as well as fusion proteins.
Dr. Gruhn, Thomas
Simulations of Mesostructured Materials
The group uses computer simulations and numerical methods for studying polymer and filament networks, colloid-polymer suspensions, and colloidal quasicrystals. Furthermore, we investigate solid state materials for alternative energy materials like thermoelectrics and thin film solar cells.
