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.
Bachelor/Master thesis: Immobilization of proteins under mild conditions using crosslinking enzymes
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.
Lifetime and disposal pathways of electronic devices in business use
In Switzerland, companies use large amounts of electronic devices that contain many important resources. In order to keep these resources in a closed loop system, it is important to know how long devices are used and stored and how they are disposed of.
