The research activities of our highly interdisciplinary group are focused on the material-electrolyte-biological matter interfaces, where complex physico-chemical phenomena take place.
The group is working at the interface between materials science, electrochemistry, biochemistry and cellular biology. We have an expertise in the assembly and characterization of molecular structures of various complexities at the material-electrolyte interface.
We are using biophysical methods and electrochemistry techniques for precisely controlling and analyzing the surfaces of our materials or the biological matter organized at the materials surface.
We are interested in the surface adsorption, self-assembly and covalent grafting of biomacromolecules in liquid conditions as well as in studies on cellular processes, from cell adhesion and differentiation.
Research applications extend from biosensors, drug delivery, biomaterials and tissue engineering.
The different research projects are organized in three main axes focusing on different aspects of the interfaces.
