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.


Dr. Jan Saam, founder of Ospin. We very much appreciated the inspiring visit of Dr. Jan Saam, which was also accompanied by a talk in course of the CBI colloquium. Here, he introduced us to the modular bioreactor approach of his company Ospin. While Ospin on the one hand provides simple stock soluti...

Prof. Patsie Polly, Education Focussed Academic in the Department of Pathology within the School of Medical Sciences, University of New South Wales, Sydney, AU. We appreciated the opportunity to welcome Prof. Patsie Polly from the 19th to 29th of November 2018 at our institute. Her efforts in elevat...

In contrast to the joyful featured image, this day was not that cheerful at all. After almost a decade, Maria Rehberger announced her farewell to fully dedicate her time to her new job as professional dog trainer. Within the eight years at the institute she resembled a beacon in the stormy sea of ad...
