For his PhD, Johannes Fingernagel is studying biohybrid structures for the development of new biosensors and drug delivery systems based on organic and inoganic nanoparticles. The research is supervised by Prof. Dr. Brigitte Voit and Dr. Dietmar Appelhans.

Fields of Activity

  • synthethis and functionalization of inorganic nanoparticles
  • synthesis of functionalized glycopolymers
  • buidling of highly ordered protein-nanoparticle and protein-glycopolymer structures
  • structure charakterisation by UV/Vis, DLS, (cryo)TEM, gel electrophoresis, MS and asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation (AF4)
