Research

Die Forschungsthemen der Fakultät sind breit angelegt. Beispiele dafür sind etwa biogene Verpackungstechnologien für mRNA-Impfstoffe, künstliche Zellen als Transportsysteme im Körper oder eine neue faserartige Batterietechnologie, die effizienter den Strom leitet und höhere Stromstärken erlaubt. Aus dem Zusammenwirken der Molekularen Lebenswissenschaften, der Biophysik und der Biochemie sowie dem Wissenschaftlichen Rechnen, dem Machine Learning und neuartigen Hardwarekonzepten entsteht ein Engineering, das die Translation aus den Naturwissenschaften in die Medizin und Medizintechnik ebenso wie den Transfer in industrielle Anwendungen befördert.

Scientific Profile: Molecular systems engineering and advanced materials

Molecular Systems Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary research field stretching from materials science to synthetic biology and medicine. Our focus is on development of new carbon-based materials, molecular engines, 3D printing, regenerative medicine, vaccines and cancer therapy. We also contribute to application areas like diagnostics, sensor technology and renewable energy.

Scientific Profile: Computer Engineering

...studies function, structure and usage of hardware for data acquisition and processing. Employing detailed knowledge of elementary components of computer chips and architecture as well es large, heterogeneous computer systems, we are able to adapt algorithms to the specifics of a hardware system in order to boost their computational efficiency or reduce their energy footprint. We deploy application specific hardware/software combinations and optimized system configurations for specific computing challenges.

Scientific Profile: Computational Science and Engineering

...is nowadays considered the third pillar of science, complementing experiment and theory. More and more knowledge of complex natural phenomena is obtained from large-scale, detailed simulations. They involve techniques from modeling of such phenomena and numerical methods, the design and implementation of algorithms to the actual execution of programs on modern hardware. We employ these techniques in applications from biology and medicine to chemistry and astrophysics and advance methods by overcoming application specific challenges.
