Biomedical Optics and Biophysics

  1. Optical tissue diagnostics

We employ Raman, FTIR spectroscopy, Optical Coherence Tmography, X-ray techniques and electron microscopy for biomedical diagnosis. Specifically, we work on skin and bone structure and function.

  1. Biophysics of drug design and action – Computational modeling

We employ computational modeling methods to explore protein-, DNA-, membrane- interactions with small molecules with biological activity and drugs.
