Research groups

Our interdisciplinary lab is composed of 3 research groups that develop state-of-the-art projects within their specific field and share their complementary expertise within joint projects.


Biophysics and Biomicrofluidics

Bioengineering and BioImaging

The development of 3D imaging/optical techniques and subsequent computational approaches allows novel ways of monitoring the growth of 3D cell cultures at large scale, with high resolution and in a harmless label-free manner.
