Nano-Microsystems for Life Sciences

Healthcare of tomorrow will change dramatically driven by global processes, such as technological advances and the digital revolution. One of the exciting possibilities to establish new patient-care standards relies on the new ultrasensitive diagnostics seamlessly integrated into gadgets, such as point-of-care system, or clinically relevant medical tools to provide maximally personalized assistance and treatment. Our mission is the development of smart miniaturized biosensing devices and systems using nanoscale materials as building blocks and advanced microfluidics to find new routes and parameters that can be employed for the characterization of biomolecules and cells as well as biochemical reactions or processes.

Our interdisciplinary research group is initiated and performed at two institutes: the Institute of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research and the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research.

  • We congratulate Diana Isabel Sandoval Bojorquez for receiving the prestigious oral presentation award at European Materials Research Society Fall Meeting 2022. More here.

  • Xinne Zhao successfully defended her PhD thesis at TU Dresden, Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering. Congratulations!!!

--- 2021 ---

  • Larysa Baraban acts as co-editor in ChemNanoMat, for the article collection 'Beyond Active Colloids: From Functional Materials to Microscale Robotics’  together with Juliane Simmchen and WeiWang.
  • The talk on  "OFET biosensors based on stretchable semiconducting polymer: a proof-of-concept application in COVID-19 pandemic" by our PhD Student Trang Anh Nguyen Le won Second Prize for Best Presentation by Young Scientist in NANONET Annual Workshop 2021. Congratulations! (Image credit: Dr. Zahn Peter)

                                               

  • We are happy to welcome Dr. Željko Janićijević to join us as PostDoc since 1th of April 2021. 
  • Our article 'Impact of surface charge on the motion of light-activated Janus micromotors' by Tao Huang, et al., has been accepted in The European Physical Journal E. In this paper, we investigated the dependence of the motility on the ζ-potential of the underlying substrate. The direction of the motion could be inverted by changing the sign of the motor’s zeta potential. The velocity of these micromotors can be further tuned by varying the boundary’s physicochemical properties that they are close to. Congratulations! 
  • Our article ‘Coexistence of fluorescent Escherichia coli strains in millifluidic droplets reactors’ by Xinne Zhao, Rico Illing et al., has been accepted in Lab-on–a-Chip. Congratulations!

--- 2020 ---

  • Manuscript of Tao Huang et al. on the study of the inverse solidification induced by active particles are highlighted with a front cover page in Advanced Functional Materials. (to wait until publishing)
  • We are happy to welcome Dr. Marvin Barahona to join us as PostDoc since 1th of August 2020. He will focus on the development of the in-vivo sensors integrated onto the surface of catheters and the development of electronic platforms for monitoring of biological signals.
  • Our article ‘Inverse solidification induced by active Janus particle‘ by Tao Huang et al., has been accepted for publication in Advanced Functional Materials. Congratulations Tao!
  • Our paper of Tao Huang et al. on the study of the exclusion behavior in active soft matter systems is highlighted with a cover page of Langmuir. This work is part of the Special Issue on Advances in Active Materials. T. Huang, S. Gobeil, X. Wang, V. Misko, F. Nori, W. De Malsche, J. Fassbender, D. Makarov, G. Cuniberti, and L. Baraban 'Anisotropic exclusion effect between photocatalytic Ag/AgCl Janus particles and passive beads in a dense colloidal matrix' Langmuir 36, 7091 (2020).
