Biological impact of nanocellulose
Research aims to assess the hazard of cellulose nanowhiskers using a realistic exposure system and a sophisticated in vitro multi-cellular system.
Colloidal stability of nanoparticles in physiological fluids
This project aims to understand the impact of colloidal stability on nanoparticle-cell interaction in vitro.
Functional silica hybrid magnetic nanoparticles
We synthesized functional silica hybrid magnetic nanoparticles and characterized their size, morphology, surface properties and magnetic response.
Genotoxicity of Nanofibres in vitro
Research aims to use in vitro testing strategies in addition to establishing methodologies for their applicability to determine the nanofibre genotoxicity.
A new microscopic imaging technique available at AMI can read the fingerprint of light reflected by Au NP and can visualize them inside cells.
Investigation of Diesel Exhaust Toxicity
We investigate how the inhalation toxicity of diesel engine emissions is influenced by newly developed and currently used diesel engine technologies
Ligand control of gold nanoparticles
The key to controlling the nanoparticle-cell interaction is controlling their surface chemistry. Through the use of selective solvent exchange and polymer desig
Live cell imaging
By using state-of-the-art live cell microscopy techniques it is possible to spatially visualize in real-time the importance of the nanoparticle-cell interaction.
Nanocarriers for drug delivery
We combine liposomal drug carriers with a multitude of various stimuli-responsive nanomaterials in order to add further properties, i.e. controlled drug release
Nanotechnology for wood preservation
This project focuses on the interaction of nanoparticles with wood, especially the potential for wood preservation.
