Head of group: Robert HORVATH, PhD

The research profile of the Nanobiosensorics Group is the development and application of label-free optical biosensors, the mathematical modeling of the relevant biological and biophysical processes.

  • In a review paper published in European Biophysics Journal they summarized the biophysical characteristics of proteins and living cells exposed to the green tea polyphenol epigallocatecin-3-gallate (EGCg).
  • Their work lead to a new model of polyphenol action on cell adhesion ligand accessibility and matrix rigidity.
  • They have successfully employed a label-free optical biosensor for on-line monitoring the integrated response of human B cells upon the engagement of stimulatory and inhibitory immune receptors.
  • They have developed a bacteria repellent layer based on oriented flagellin films.
