Many possible subjects for short and long (master thesis) internship projects:

  • synthesis of smart materials based on organic and inorganic materials, biofunctional coatings based on polymers, synthetic diamond, biomimetic materials and other biocompatible compounds;
  • design, development and application of nano(bio-)materials for advanced drug delivery, imaging, and diagnosis and therapy (theranostics)
  • design and development of biosensors and sensor arrays for proteins, drugs, metabolites, hormones, and genetic material;
  • surface analytics, spectroscopy, and molecular electronics;
  • design of synthetic receptors such as aptamers and molecular imprints;
  • electrophysiology, cytosensors, neurochips, and active implants.
