Science

The Department of Applied Biology comprises several research directions combining environmental microbiology and the development of nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Specifically, these include the study of nanomaterials and porous structures for regenerative medicine, drug delivery and cosmetics; the effects of nanomaterials on natural microbial communities, in vitro cell cultures and ex vivo tissue models; and the activity of microorganisms in relation to the safety of deep geological radioactive waste repositories; antibacterial and algicidal properties of novel photocatalytic materials; the impact of remediation technologies on natural microbial communities; and the development of test methodologies and systems for evaluating the interactions of cell populations with (nano)materials and active agents under simulated conditions.
