Research Areas of the Bausch Group

Out interest lies in the physics of biological systems. We are especially fascinated by the mechanisms nature uses to produce materials with outstanding mechanical properties. We aim for identifying the physical principals of the structure formation processes and the resulting mechanical properties. This requires the development of new quantitative physical techniques and concepts and has consequences in our understanding of important cellular and physiological processes.

Currently, we focus on four different areas:

Complex microfluidics and novel biomaterials
The physics of the cytoskeleton
Nanoscopy
Pattern formation
