Competencies Life Sciences

In the area of life sciences at ICBT we have excellent competencies in broad range of research fields such as:

Biochemistry

We put our knowledge into practice in projects with life science companies, the pharmaceutical industry as well as in education courses and general teaching. Our core competencies are:

Cell Culture Technology and TEDD

Organ-like human tissue models are an important tool for drug development and evaluation of active substances. The focus of our research is the construction of three-dimensional tissue cultures using human primary cells. We have been applying the methods of tissue engineering for over 10 years to various tissue types such as bone, cartilage and intervertebral discs, connective tissue and skin, the liver and the pancreas. These in vitro tissues and the use of various technologies provide the basis for many diverse objectives and applications. Our developments are used in areas such as:

Medicinal Chemistry and Organic Chemistry

The research activities are focused on the organic synthesis and analyses of small novel and complex molecules at the interface between chemistry and biology. Medicinal Chemistry collaboration with research based pharmaceutical companies according to our complete set of medicinal chemistry capacities (from structure based design to organic synthesis) consulting in the area of medicinal chemistry and process management for start-up as well as small and mid-sized pharmaceutical companies (computational drug design, establishing screening concepts, development of structure activity relationships, development of clinical candidates, process optimization employing SixSigma process management tools).

The following core areas outline our main research activities:

Microbiology and Biofilms

In collaboration with the industry and our project partners, we develop and check case-specific solutions for challenges such as how existing biofilms can be tackled and their formation controlled and reduced.

With the help of existing test systems as well as customer-specific modifications and developments, we can observe and analyze biofilm formation.

The analysis of biofilms is carried out by means of traditional microbiology, biochemistry and chemistry methods such as:

Competencies Materials Science

The focus of the Centre for Nanotechnology and Functional Materials are the modification and analysis of surfaces and the development of applications in the following areas of chemistry and biology:

Functional- and biomaterials, nanotechnology

Materials: nano and mesoporous silicates with adjustable pore size (1 – 10 nm) and shape containing gated channels, tailor made nanofibrous carriers from volatile payloads to large biomolecules such as phages, and surfactant free polymeric nanocarriers with amphiphilic surface properties.

Surface analysis

Filtration methods
