Current Research Actvities
The group is currently synthesizing new magnetic carrier materials and functionalizes them with stabilizing chemicals. In the laboratory, methods for the synthesis of peptides are being developed in order to carry out experiments with a large number of different peptides and under low cost conditions. The interaction of the peptides with target particles should also be optimized and target material be examined in detail for its chemical and physical properties. Current projects can be found under the following link.
