Frederike Erb

Fluoreszierende Nanodiamanten (FND) bieten neue Möglichkeiten in der Bildgebung und Messtechnik. Sie sind biokompatibel und können deshalb in lebenden Zellen verwendet werden. Frederike untersucht, wie FNDs funktionalisiert werden können, um spezifisches Binden zu ermöglichen und neuartige Sensoren zu entwickeln.

Samira Khalaji

Samira studies the biophysical aspects of cellular aging and tries to
explore emergent features in the aging of multi­-cellular assemblies using different techniques such as Microrheology, live cell video microscopy and scanning force microscopy.

Fenneke KleinJan

Fenneke studies the mechanical properties of fibroblasts and how they depend on expressed integrin-type and experienced stress. Using microrheology, electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, the physical properties of both living cells and extracted cytoskeleton components are determined at multiple length and time scales.

Patrick Paul

Patrick investigates the interactions of cellularly expressed integrins using atomic force microscopy. Furthermore, he is interested in the response of cells to mechanical stress.

Fabian Port

For the detailed analysis of the cellular mechano-response to stretch, Fabian develops a cell stretching device combined with an atomic force microscope.

Susan Tavakoli

The goal of her project is to combine an artificial lung-on-a-chip with a strain sensor.
