Anja Blueher studied Biology at the Technische Universitaet Dresden. Since 2002 she is working at TU Dresden in the working group "BioNanotechnology and Structure Formation" where she completed her doctoral thesis on the study of bacterial surface proteins (S-layer) for modification, coating and structuring of technical substrates in 2008. In the following period as a post doc, she worked with synthesis of ordered nanoparticle structures by metallization of the recrystallized SL proteins and visualization with AFM, SEM, and TEM. From 2010 to 2015 she worked at the Institute of Physical Chemistry in the chair of Prof. Michael Mertig for Physical Chemistry, Measurement and Sensor Technology in topics like modification and structuring of technical substrate surfaces for sensor applications with SL proteins as biomolecular building blocks and metallization or decoration of recrystallized proteinlayers with synthesized metal nanoparticles. In January 2015 she joined the chair for Materials Science and Nanotechnology to participate in the development of highly selective and long-term stable biological sensor-actuator structures for sustainable use of water and resources.
