Nanotools for Cell-Chip Communication

Helmholtz Young Investigators Group

Welcome to our group page!

In our group, we develop and investigate on-chip devices for bioelectronic applications based on nanofabrication technologies. Specifically, we are interested in establishing tools for the communication with cells and cellular networks. To this end, we investigate electrochemical techniques, which benefit from fast diffusion processes on the nanometer scale. Our goal is to develop biohybrid systems based on these tools to study the release of neurotransmitters. Furthermore, we explore functional interfaces for cell-chip coupling using electrical, chemical, and optical communication in a fluidic environment. Thus, we are working in an exciting, highly interdisciplinary field at the border between physics, chemistry, and biology.
