Master Thesis / Semester project: Development of optimized bio-polymeric nanofibers for controlled drug release
The aim of this project is to optimize production parameters for electrospun membranes to be used for wound healing. The student will produce and analyze nanofibers. The resulting fibrous membranes will be loaded with bioactive substances extracted from medicinal mushrooms
Nanotopography and macrophage functions
The project aims to determine how integrin pattern on nanogold influences macrophage focal adhesion and the sequential signal-transduction that control macrophage functions.
LICARA NanoSCAN – a web based tool for sustainable nanomaterials
Empa, TNO and the Nano-Cluster Bodensee designed the LICARA NanoSCAN together with partners from industry and science to help SMEs to develop sustainable innovative nanomaterials, products and applications. The LICARA NanoSCAN helps to assess the benefits and risks of nanomaterials.
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.
