Assoc. Prof. Daniel Aili

Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Materials

My research interests involves design and development of molecules, soft materials and hybrid nanoscale components and devices for a wide range of applications in biomedicine and molecular biology, including diagnostics, biosensors, drug delivery and regenerative medicine. I have a large interest in molecular self-assembly. In addition to study fundamental self-assembly processes, we explore self-assembly as a tool for creating bioresponsive and biointeractive materials and devices with different compositions, nanostructures, and functions.

Fatemeh Rasti Boroojeni

PhD Student

In my research I focus on designing and fabricating 4D hydrogels, 3D cell cultures and organ-on-chip. The mechanical and physical properties of this kind of hydrogel can be tuned over time by cellular activity.

MSc Michael Jury

PhD student

My research covers peptide chemistry and polymer synthesis to produce hydrogels with dynamic properties for applications in biological cell culturing. This is achieved through controlled conjugation of peptide cell adhesion motifs to tunable polymer biomaterials. Currently, we are using this as a scaffold for culturing a neuroblastoma cell line.

DDS/MSc Anna Svärd

PhD student

In my research I study periodontitis (tooth-loss). I focus on improving diagnostics of this disease by measuring biomarkers with nano sensors. We are also interested in studying the effects of bacteriocins on key-pathogens such as P.gingivalis.

Sajjad Naeimipour

PhD Student

In my research my focus is on designing hydrogels using peptides and peptides interactions mostly coiled-coils interactions to have more control over mechanical and chemical properties of these hydrogels as biomaterials. The aim of this study is to produce tunable hydrogels with medical application as bioink or injectable hydrogel.
