Research interest

The research program of our group focuses on synthetic chemistry and molecular biology. Chemists, biologists and physicists are dedicated to the task of inventing new molecular technologies and creating new biomolecular and biohybrid structures by combining chemical and biological processes. Our group has pioneered the development of two classes of materials: nucleic acid conjugates and supercharged polypeptides. Inspired by nature, these materials are designed to form well-defined molecular architectures that span multiple length scales from nanometer to macroscopic structures. This is an important prerequisite for the realization of complex functions in technological, medical and life science applications.
