Sugar hydrogels as biosensors

Carbohydrates are not merely a source of our nutrition. Many sugars are bioactive in that their structure contains molecular information that is recognized by cell receptors to control various important biological functions, such as cell signaling and immune response. Therefore, the synthesis of complex sugars containing the “right” information and understanding their biomolecular interactions is crucial to the advances in biomedicine and related areas.

Polymeric  Biomimetics

The main focus of the Emmy Noether junior research group 'Polymeric Biomimetics' is the synthesis of sequence-defined neoglycopolymers and their use for biomedical applications. Neoglycopolymers are polysaccharide-mimetics, usually consisting of a polymeric backbone or framework carrying saccharid groups in the side chain.
