The Micro Nano and Molecular Systems Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems develops technologies that enable new biomedical applications.

We are a multidisciplinary team of physicists, chemists and engineers and we work closely together with clinicians. Our inventions range from novel nanorobotic systems to wireless microtechnologies and the development of biomimetic organ phantoms.

Our group has pioneered nanopropellers for the penetration of biological barriers and tissues. We work on novel chemically-propelled carriers (chemical motors) for targeted delivery. Our group has found an entirely new way to project ultrasound that can generate the most sophisticated ultrasound fields to date. We work on phantoms that are anatomically correct and that can be used for ‘real’ surgical procedures.
