Development of a cross-departmental platform for optical micromanipulation

In-situ applications to bio-colloids for drug delivery and particle cell interactions

This NCCR Collaborative Project brings together three groups of the NCCR to develop new ideas for drug delivery inspired by Nature and better understand nanoparticle-cell interactions. The project is led by Profs. Stefan Salentinig (Module 3), Alke Fink (Module 3) and Frank Scheffold (Module 2), and aims to apply the know-how of the Scheffold group in optical manipulation of small particles to tackle important research questions in chemistry and bio-nanotechnology studied in the Salentinig and Fink labs.
