Twist and torque in the cellular nanocosmos: Diez group detects biophysical forces of molecular motors in 3D
TU Dresden establishes new relations with India
Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) now concluded a new cooperation agreement.
Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) now concluded a new cooperation agreement. This initative focuses on joint research and educational initiatives in the field of biophysics and nanotechnology. The German partners are the TUD institutes B CUBE and BIOTEC, the Chair of Nanosciences, the Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials and the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden.
"Understanding the physical principles of motion, self-organisation, communication and material design on the nano- and micro-scale and their implementation in new concepts in the fields of material science and engineering are some of the visionary topics of this cooperation", says Prof. Stefan Diez, Professor for BioNano Tools at the B CUBE - Center for Molecular Bioengineering and Managing Director of the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) of the TUD. "But also the development and application of new instruments based on micro- and nanotechnological methods for diagnostics as well as therapeutic applications in the health sciences are goals of the cooperation".
The cooperation is supported by a core grant from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD and enables both institutions to highlight intercultural topics in addition to their scientific cooperation.
