Our research group is located at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and affiliated with the University of Heidelberg. Our research is focused on the synthesis and application of biofunctional materials, surfaces and nanoparticles.


Welcome to Dr. Nikolaj Mandsberg who has joined our group! Nikolaj recently graduated from DTU, spent a year as a member of Joanna Aizenberg´s lab in Harvard and received the Carlsberg Foundation Internationalization Fellowship!

Many applications reached us in the last few days, much more than our laboratory can host. For this reason, we cannot offer any more internships. However, we are working together with other research groups to enable more laboratory placements at KIT in the near future. Until then, please refrain from sending E-Mails. Many people seemed to confuse our offer. Please note that this is about internships in a chemical or biological laboratory, and NOT enabling you to study your subject at KIT. Please do not just come directly to our laboratory. We are not housing refugees on Campus. Housing is a task of the state (Baden-Württemberg), the federal government (Germany), NGOs, or private helpers.

There is a FAQ from the BAMF:

Link (Ukrainian)

We wish everyone the best in these hard times.

If you are pursuing a degree in chemistry, biology, chemical biology, material science, pharmacy, or a related subject in any Ukrainian university or research institute and you are interested in a laboratory internship at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, please contact me via E-Mail.

After the shocking events of last week, it is important to me to demonstrate that the international scientific community knows no borders and is united against war. Young individuals eager to get a higher education should not be restricted by the aggressive actions of another state. For this reason, I would like to follow the admirable examples of many of my colleagues and offer students in Ukraine a placement in my laboratory at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

My group can offer a warm and international environment, financial support, and many exciting projects in an excellence university.

Sharing is highly appreciated!
