  • The research focuses in this future field deal with the construction of bioinspired, biomimetic, biobased and bioactive material systems.
  • In addition to the transfer of functional principles from living nature to technical systems, this also includes the development of new active hybrids by integration of synthetic and biological components and a bioactive functionalization of materials and (micro)systems to enable them to interact with proteins, cells and tissues.
  • More information can be found under “Current Projects” and “Completed Projects”.
