Research interests of the BioNT group range from dynamic supramolecular chemistry in solution and on surfaces, to biomedical use of nanomaterials and microfluidic technologies.
Applications are the development of for example multimodal diagnostic and theragnostic agents, and the fabrication of microfluidic sensing systems based on optical/fluorescence and NMR spectroscopy.
The main research topics within the Laboratory of BioNanoTechnology are:
We have strong collaborations with the following groups and organizations:
