Bioanalytical Systems

Biosensors have been one of the most intensively studied topics in the last 20 years, due possibility of detecting and measuring different biomarkers, such as proteins, enzymes, and ions. In particular, electrochemical biosensors are the most established method to deliver personalized therapy in real-time and can also help to study physiological and behavioral mechanisms in animal models that fail due to a lack of translation for humans.

Our research group develops biosensors for the detection of neurotransmitters (dopamine, glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid) and in the application of new 3D printing technologies to improve the biocompatibility and the electrochemical preforms of the sensor. 
Nowadays, we are focusing on the Parkinson's disease model system.
