Molecular Nanosensors and Applications

(Lars Renner)


title:Molecular Nanosensors and Applications
time frame:

The demographic change in Germany poses an increasing threat on the local medical coverage. An increasingly aging population requires new and innovative health care solutions. Our group investigates new solutions for already existing and future health care challenges. The work includes innovative approaches in fundamental research as well as practical applications to design sensors for health care applications and monitoring. The long-term goal is to design and develop (nanowire based) sensor systems that could be used to improve and facilitate wireless health care surveillance. The group is part of an interdisciplinary approach that also involves researchers from public health science. The group is funded by the European Social Funds in Saxony (ESF).

people involved:

Linda Deutscher - Bacterial nanowires
Andreas Gang - Nanowire based sensor for the detection of biomolecules
Marcin Meyer - Development of a sensor platform for health care surveillance
Cindy Schmädicke - Development of gas sensors based on nanowires from various metal oxides
Sara Teixeira - Photocatalytic degradation of antibiotics from waste water
