Research Group

Research Focus

 The research of the Polymer Chemistry & Biomaterials group can be subdivided in the following research activities:

• Functional polymers for biomedical applications
• Biomaterials: e.g. biocompatibe coatings
• Advanced drug/gene delivery systems
• Scaffolds for tissue engineering
• Biosensors and polymers for optical applications

Polymer Synthesis facilities are available to perform various types of polymerizations, and characterization of polymer bulk properties. In addition, state-of-the-art equipment is available for surface modification & characterization. Furthermore, a Rapid Prototyping (Bioscaffolder) and an Electropspinning device are available for polymer processing.
