PhD project:

Within his PhD project 'Mechanical assessment of collagen molecules and collagen cross-links' he tries to use Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to determine mechanical properties of collagen. More precisely, he is going to investigate Tropocollagen that is combined by chemical functionalization with the AFM tip by using the Single Molecule Force Spectroscopy mode.

Research key words:

Collagen, Atomic Force Microscopy Single Molecule Force Spectroscopy, Bioconjugation

Conference contributions: 


Poster presentation at the 8th AFM Biomed Conference 2017 in Krakow (4th to 8th September 2017)
