The overarching research area of the Department is biological materials science, which connects materials science and biology in a reciprocal way.
The Department synthesizes "customized" sugar molecules and links them with other molecular groups.
Research focuses on biomimetic systems that offer simple and sustainable solutions for global challenges such as the increasing energy demand and a global CO2 problem.
The Department investigates the structure and dynamics of molecules, colloids and nanoparticles in biological and biomimetic systems.
The group investigates the influence of force on the structure and function of molecules and materials.
Graduate program, where young talented doctoral students can work on a challenging research project and develop their scientific communication and management skills.
Supplementary application system (UMANTIS) for mostly non-scientific positions
