Laboratory for Biomaterials


The Laboratory for Biomaterials is part of the Institute for Biotechnology and the Helmholtz-Institute for Biomedical Engineering. In the research field of Glycobiotechnology we develop tailor-made strategies for the synthesis of natural and modified glycoconjugates by the combination of multi-enzyme reactions. Our long-term goal is the development of novel glycoconjugate biofunctionalized biomaterial surfaces or novel carbohydrate-based diagnostic/therapeutic tools.
