Development of biomaterials and speciality materials with healthcare related functionalities are the collective theme of this well established and long standing group.

The group draws its strength from close collaboration with industry and healthcare centers where identified needs in real situations often become the subject of applied research and their subsequent developments. Due to multidisciplinary nature of these activities, the group engages with other disciplines. Currents areas of interest include:

  • Production and processing of novel biomaterials
  • Microwave radiometry for tumors and oncological detection
  • Microwave destruction of bacteria
  • Development of multifunctional wound dressings – antimicrobial, wound healing
  • Adaptation of smart functional polymers in microsystems
  • Woundcare management
  • Venous leg ulcer management and regimes  
  • Development and testing of therapeutic agents
  • Bioanalytical chemistry
  • Bioinorganic chemistry
  • High-resolution biomedical NMR analysis
  • Metabonomics: bio- and chemometrics
