Medical Biotechnology

The medical biotechnology research area focuses on designing, engineering and applying macromolecules and cells used in health related biotechnological applications. The research spans from fundamental insights into physiological processes and their function to engineering of biological molecules and their interaction with tissues and biomaterials for precision medical applications. Cellular systems for production and application in health technologies are studied and designed using experimental and computational methods. The research area includes and lies next to research areas of protein design, cell engineering, sensors and diagnostics, and protein and industrial biotechnology.
