Biointerfaces and Interaction of Biosystems
Multidisciplinary research in which physics plays a crucial role is a focus of the group. Interfaces and their properties are important in both living organisms and in sensors and diagnostics where we need to interact with biological systems. Sophisticated, non-invasive sensing methods are required for detecting small concentrations of biomolecules and processes in the body.
This research program consists of the following projects:
- Platform technologies for the surface immobilization of functional biomolecules;
- Proactive surfaces for implantable medical devices;
- Optical sensing methods for detection of protein on surfaces;
- Scintillation dosimetry; and
