Research

Our research focuses on peptides designed to form self-assembled structures, from monomolecular coating films to hydrogels in context of bone tissue regeneration and nanoparticles for drug delivery and diagnostics .

We are interested in generating functional biomaterials. We aim at acquiring control over biological molecules, to construct systems with varied biological, chemical and physical functionalities, inspired by natural biomolecules.
