Development and biomedical applications of silicon nanostructures

In the Voelcker lab, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of the interactions between nanostructured materials and human cells and tissues, and their biomolecular products. To that effect, we are developing nanostructured materials and surface chemistries, with a focus on electrochemically etched meso- and macroporous materials. These systems are then optimised for applications in biosensing, drug delivery, regenerative medicine and others.
