About us

The scientists at the institute are mainly working in four fields:

- Biomimetics
- Biological surface characterisation
- Development of measurement devices in biology and medicine
- Theoretical modelling of biological processes

In the biomimetics field the focus is on the examination of biological effects and the development of possible technical applications. Biological surfaces of interest are cell surfaces, especially adhesion proteins, adhesive organs and animals' integuments.
Measurement devices of interest are in the fields of microscopy, biomechanics and cell-cell-interaction.
Theoretical modelling and analytical as well as numerical descriptions of biological processes are done in the areas of cell-cell-interaction, adhesion, optical properties of biological material and wetting phenomena.
