The research topics of the faculty are broad. Examples include biogenic packaging technologies for mRNA vaccines, artificial cells as transport systems in the body, and a new fiber-like battery technology that conducts electricity more efficiently and allows higher current levels. The interaction of molecular life sciences, biophysics and biochemistry as well as scientific computing, machine learning and novel hardware concepts results in engineering that promotes translation from the natural sciences into medicine and medical technology as well as transfer into industrial applications.
