Bioengineering and Biomaterials

Bioengineering is the application of life science, physical science, mathematics and engineering principles to define and solve problems in biology, medicine, the environment, materials and other fields. In Dresden we focus on the application of nanotechnological tools to broaden our understanding of biology and medicine, as well as using the wide variety of molecular functions provided by nature’s “nanomachines” as a basis for an innovative nanobiotechnology. The tools we use to characterize and engineer molecular-scale systems 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.
