The overall objective is to develop novel innovative materials, concepts, and strategies for a range of in vitro and in vivo applications. The research is carried out at the interface of medicine, chemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science. Our main focus is on materials in the bead and particle formats in nano- and micro-sized ranges. Within nanomedicine, nanoparticles for targeted therapy and diagnosis (theranostics) are developed. For in vitro applications, we develop supports for solid-phase synthesis and solid-phase screenings and polymer-based recognition elements for the analysis of clinical, environmental, and food samples. All materials are designed to cause minimal interference with the matrix in which the target is present. For medical applications, questions on biocompatibility and toxicity are addressed. 

New name

This research group was originally called "Biomedical Polymer Technology", but the research has evolved, motivating a name change.
