Welcome at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology

The Institute of Medical Biotechnology provides an umbrella research and teaching facility that brings together biomedical and natural scientists and with engineers from process engineering, mechatronics, optical engineering and sensorics to work together in a multidisciplinary and competitive research environment. We provide 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 (Dys-)function‘. This is fueled by combining research on medical disease and principles of biotechnology and biomedical engineering to develop technical strategies to asses diagnostics and possible disease therapies.

Topics covered at the Institute of Medical Biotechnology reach from malaria biotechnology, biomechatronics in muscle, high-throughput biology & robophotonics, biomedical and environmental process engineering, advanced optical technologies in Life Sciences (e.g. multiphoton (endo-)microscopy), as well as regenerative medicine (tissue engineering).

A joint focus through the different groups is to develop and expand the field of opto-biomechatronics, an area that brings together biophotonics and biomechatronics in holistic engineering of novel systems technologies to directly assess structure-function relationships of tissues and bioartificial constructs in health, disease and bioengineering.

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.


After more than a decade, and with a heavy heart, we say farewell to Dr. Daniel Gilbert, who shaped the institute sustainably ever since the beginning. From the very first day the Institute of Medical Biotechnology was became part of the FAU, Dr. Gilbert was eager to explore new fields of research a...

In 2019, FAU published a press release for our development of an advanced optical endoscope for label-free in vivo tissue diagnostics, after publication in ‘Advanced Science’. Now Ashwathama Dilipkumar and Lucas Kreiß, two Doctoral Candidates at the MBT and first authors of this publication, have re...

Betriebswirt (d/f/m) gesucht für Ausgründung mit EXIST Im Rahmen des EXIST Forschungstransfers vom Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie, planen wir noch dieses Jahr (Juni 2020) die Antragstellung zur Förderung einer Ausgründung unter dem EXIST Programm. Ziel ist es, ein Unternehmen zu etabl...

Prof. Dr. Patsie Polly, UNSW, School of Medical Sciences, Sydney. We greatly appreciated to host Prof. Dr. Patsie Polly from the end of November to the mid of December at our institute and welcome her as project partner on a BayIntAn project of the Bavarian Research Alliance. Repeated collaboration ...

Prof. Seward Rutkove, MD, Harvard Medical School. It was a great pleasure to host Prof. Rutkove for one week in Nov 19 as an FAU Visiting Professorship Fellow. On a side note, he ensured us that his fun-developed "Should I Travel Index" (based on his homepage shoulditravel.org) fully encouraged this...
