About us

We investigate the collective behaviour of systems consisting of interacting biomacromolecules, red blood cells, and novel thermosensitive DNA hybrid particles. Our aim is to gain a fundamental quantitative understanding of their phase and transport behaviour, and their biological functions. For this purpose, we analyse the systems for realistically high concentrations of their components under non-equilibrium conditions due to concentration and temperature gradients, flow, electric fields and spatial confinement. Our main research techniques are advanced microscopy and scattering methods, rheology and microfluidics, as well as theoretical methods and computer simulations.
