Risk assessment of nanomaterials
Nanoparticles (NP) are already contained in many commercial products. During various stages of the life cycle of a product, NP can be released into the environment. The aim of this work is to investigate release, transformations and fate of NP in the environment, based on a life-cycle perspective.
Bachelor/Master thesis: Enzymatic Immobilization of Proteins
The immobilization of proteins to material surfaces confers novel functionalities, e.g. catalytic activity, biocompatibility, or antifouling properties. In this work, Protein immobilization will be achieved using crosslinking enzymes.
Praktikumsstelle für einen Stundent/in Bauingenieurwesen
Der/die Student/in wird in die Konzeptarbeit eingebunden, bei Versuchen (Brand, Dauerstand, Ermüdung) aktiv mitwirken und die Datenanalyse bisheriger, durchgeführter Versuche durchführen. Darüber hinaus wird der Einblick in eine moderne Forschungsinstitution gewährt.
Master Thesis: Quantification of bacterial adhesion on surfaces using genome integrated fluorescence markers
For correct and reliable evaluation of bacterial-material interaction (biofilm) it is important to have reliable in situ methods. One of the quantification methods can be the use of genome integrated gene cassettes encoding fluorescence proteins. The student will help to establish this technique.
Master Project: Modulation of macrophage function on nanogold
This is an interdisciplinary project to be performed at Empa St gallen and Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart. The project aims to investigate the immune response of macrophages on biomaterials with nano-scale ligand density.
