Bioengineering & Biomaterials

Bioengineering is the application of principles and techniques from engineering and biology to develop innovative solutions for healthcare, biotechnology, and related fields. Biomaterials science involves the study of materials designed to interact with biological systems, often for medical applications, aiming to understand their properties and enhance their compatibility and performance within living organisms. Dresden is renowned for its significant contributions to the fields of bioengineering and biomaterials science in areas such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and the development of novel biomaterials, fostering collaborations between biologists, physicists, chemists, engineers and medical researchers to advance cutting-edge technologies. Moreover, in Dresden we focus on innovative approaches (i) to create functional interfaces between biological systems and synthetic materials, (ii) to design, generate and utilize bio-inspired materials, and (iii) develop and apply molecular as well as cellular machines for nanotechnological applications. Our tools to characterize and engineer such systems across multiple scales include single-molecule imaging and manipulation tools, cutting-edge technologies for the micro/nano structuring of organic/inorganic materials, and a wide range of biomolecular synthesis techniques.
