The Medical Biotechnology section thrives for designing, engineering and applying macromolecules, cells and tissues for application in a health and patient benefit related context. The research spans from fundamental insights into physiological processes and their function to engineering of biological and chemical molecules and their interaction with targets, tissues and biomaterials for precision medical applications. Biochemical systems for production and application in health technologies are studied and designed using experimental and computational methods. The section research also includes and applies protein design, cell engineering, sensors and diagnostics, and precision medicine for solving urgent clinical needs.
The section has available state of the art platforms and instrumentation for protein engineering and production and in basic and advanced host systems, electrospinning of biomaterials, biomechanics, advanced tissue culture, flow cytometry and biomolecular interaction analysis.
The section is strongly engaged in the Bachelor and Master programs in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering at Aarhus University.
