Personal Data

Manfred Maitz is responsible for the field of hemocompatible surfaces in the Institute Biofunctional Polymer Materials. He is a medical doctor (Dr. med.) by education and has been working on biomaterials research in institutes in Würzburg, Ulm, Magdeburg, Dresden and Chengdu (PR China) before he joined the IPF in 2006.

He is Guest Professor at Southwest Jiaotong University, School of Materials Science and Engineering in Chengdu, China, where he has annual research stays as guest scientist.

His focus of research is on feedback responsive materials to control blood coagulation and inflammatory responses at biomaterials in blood. These are important as vascular stents, artificial heart valves, hemodialysis membranes or tubings for extracorporeal circulation, etc.

He is member of the WTR in the IPF.
