Biomedical Engineering and Life Science


DTU Nanotech aims at being at the forefront of biomedical and life science research with focus on nano- and microscale biomaterials. We aim to benefit society by creating innovative technological solutions to healthcare challenges. We have world-class facilities for the synthesis, characterisation and biological testing of novel biomaterials. In 2014 we have attracted several talented young scientists within drug delivery, tissue engineering and other areas of biomedical science. These young talents together with the attraction of major grants, in particular a Centre of Excellence from the Danish National Research Foundation, provide very exciting prospects for our department within this fast developing area.
