Nanomaterials design

We work at the interface of materials science and cell biology to design and synthesize magnetic nanomaterials and composites as transducers for controlling cell functionalities.

Combining knowledge from tissue engineering approaches and nanomaterials synthesis we explore novel biocompatible compositions. We use materials characterization approaches to study the materials properties and adjust them to our organ modulation approaches. 

We focous on the magnetization properties of magnetic nanoparticles, their biocompatibility and surface functionalization to be used in biological applications to trigger cell function.
