New projects

A lot of exciting novel projects have started recently in the BioNanomaterials group. Some of them are part of the new National Center of Competence in Research on Bio-inspired Materials (see also our activities in the NCCR), others are carried out in close collaboration with the Zurich University of Applied Sciences or the University of Antwerp. In these projects, we will continue studying the interaction of nanparticles with living matter, develop new and robust methods for particle characterization, investigate magnetic clusters in much more detail, or design fascinating hybrid magnetoresponsive materials.  We will keep you updated!
