Development of novel molecular tools for bioactive functionalization of nanocellulose based coatings towards advanced wound healing.
Smart molecular tools will be developed aiming at bioactive functionalization of nanocellulose substrates towards advanced wound healing activity.
Risk assessment of nanomaterials
Engineered Nanomaterials (ENM) are contained in many commercial products. During various stages of the life cycle of a product, ENM can be released into the environment. The aim of this work is to investigate release, flows and risks of ENM in the environment, based on a life-cycle perspective.
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.
Internship (12 months) for material testing of biological degradation of epoxy or of fiber-reinforced epoxy composites - EMPA
Empa’s Laboratory for Mechanical Systems Engineering aims at investigating biological degradation of epoxy and epoxy composites by comparing different routes characterizing them in an experimental approach with respect to degradation rate, residuals, and property degradation due to bio-exposure.
Anodization processes of pure aluminum for tuning optical properties
The “Mechanics of Materials and Nanostructures Laboratory“ at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Research (Empa) in Thun, Switzerland, is looking for highly motivated master student with qualification in physics, materials science, mechanics or microengineering.
Protein-based FRET biosensors are useful tools for the monitoring of physiological processes. They allow the detection of enzymatic activities and metabolites in a specific manner. Recombinantly produced, these biosensors can be modified at the gene level to address different target molecules. Previ
Tailoring protein-material interaction
Biomolecules such as proteins and enzymes can provide materials with novel functions and properties. By using chemical and enzymatic methods, we aim at functionalizing surfaces and at studying the effect of protein-material interaction on the biomolecule's activity. Various projects available.
