The research objectives of Smart Materials and Biodevices Group , keep the orientation of the most focus aspects of environmental friendly nanomaterials and nanotechnology for example, stimuli-responsive nano-systems engineering to industries and end users, particularly those involved in the material and biocatalysis sectors for solving real practical environmental problems connecting the development of innovative analytical methods, as support tool to the interpretation of processes. Further, our research targets particularly challenges posed to modern society by key emerging medical issues so-called trace and/or new emergent super-thin medical diagnostic tools. These objectives are also include the development, testing and validation of advanced methodologies and biomedical indicators related to research needs arising from recent and envisaged medical devices.
Our recent research focus is broaden with smart nanometer-scale biological integration systems, viz. drug delivery and imaging applications, cf., establish mechanisms of nanostructure assembly to build-up sustainable biodevices for biomedical, energy supply, environmental risk assessment, designing of ultra-sensitive sensors, tools and systems for the analysis. In the current context, we are actively involved in fabrication and designing of intelligent materials for various research interest including high-capacity conducting bio-materials, designing of zipper-like bioreactors for biobatteries and biofuel cell research, smart bio-catalytic system technology, etc.
Development, validation and application of innovative analytical methodologies based on gas, chemical, bio- sensors applied to the detection of contaminants, new analytical methodologies based on probing consists of natural matters to study natural matter-pollutants interactions; on photoreactions, with/without photosensitizes, of pollutants to obtain knowledge in the field of remediation of polluted environments, i.e., via electrochemical, photometric, immunochemical, aptamers and cell-selective SELEX nanotechnology to be applied for analysis/diagnose of environmental pollutants, biological threads, metabolic moieties in biological samples at very low concentrations and early stage carcinoma, respectively.
