Methods

Biomimetic Lipid Membranes

We are using several model membrane systems:

  • Supported Lipid Membranes
  • Giant unilamellar Vesicles
  • Phase Separated Lipid Membranes
  • Topographically Molded Lipid Membranes
  • Lipid Monolayers

Optical- and Soft Lithography

We are using Light Patterns to generate ...

  • Microstructured biomimetic environments
  • Microfluidic devices
  • Surface micropatterns

Optogenetics and Light-Switchable Molecules

We are engineering biological objects with light-switchable properties.

Optical Microscopy Techniques

We are using optical methods, such as fluorescence microscopy techniques to image and quantitatively analyze the spatio-temporal dynamics of biological matter.
