The research group

Our research interests include the development of (bio)assays and lab-on-a-chip systems for the multilevel sensing of in vitro & in vivo tissue structures.
An important aspect of our research is concerned with the heterogeneous integration of micro- and nanosensors, miniaturized fluid handling systems and electronic components to establish higher level system architectures needed for automated organ-on-a-chip systems.
