Welcome at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology

The Institute of Medical Biotechnology provides an umbrella research and teaching facility that brings together biomedical scientists, natural scientists and engineers from process engineering, mechatronics and sensorics to work together in a multidisciplinary and competitive research environment to build an interface between biomedical sciences, life sciences and bioengineering. Our focus in Medical Biotechnology is dedicated towards ‚Technologies in Life Sciences and Biotechnology to increase our Understanding and Manipulation of Organ Dysfunction‘, which is practised by combining research on medical disease and principles of biotechnology and molecular cell biology to develop technical strategies to asses diagnostics and possible disease therapies.

Topics covered at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology reach from malaria biotechnology, biomedical engineering and biophysics in skeletal muscle to heart, high-throughput screening technologies, biomedical and environmental process engineering, advanced optical technologies in Life sciences (e.g. multiphoton endomicroscopy) and applications (e.g. multiphoton microscoy in living cells), as well as regenerative medicine (tissue engineering).

Our institute is well connected to local and international collaborators (i.e. Canada, USA and Australia) and promotes internationalization of state-of-the-art research to meet the rapid growing expectations in biotechnology research and industry for the future of life sciences.


Katharina Künzel, successfully defended her thesis at the 27th April 2018 and obtained her doctoral degree at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology. During her time in the lab she was working on GABA-A receptors in human embryonal teratocarcinoma cells (NT2) to establish a stable cell line to expre...

Sepideh Abolpour Mofrad. On the 16th of April, Sepideh Abolpour Mofrad obtained her Doctoral Degree at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology. During her time at our Institute, she drove forward the development of a robust protocol for assessing differentiation stages in human pluripotent NT2 stem c...
