Our work in the Bioanalytics department involves trying to understand the highly complex signalling and metabolic pathways in cells and cell layers in the human body at different levels, from lipids through to intercellular communication processes. Our long-term objective is to improve the health of the general public. To this end, we develop techniques to measure molecule diffusion with spatial and temporal resolution. We hope that these measurement techniques and the results of analyses can be used to help diagnose a variety of illnesses more easily – such as cardiovascular diseases - and perhaps even to develop new therapies. 

In order to explain the multitude of single processes in as much detail and as reliably as possible, we work on living cells and with microchips on which the transport and signalling paths of human cells are simulated.
