Aachener Verfahrenstechnik - Microscale Bioengineering

AVT.MSB

Info:

Microbial cultures are often confronted with inhomogeneous and highly dynamic environments. These environmental factors often trigger the occurrence of severe population heterogeneity, allowing cells in nature to cope with changing and complex conditions. Applying classical analysis it is nearly impossible to unravel these phenomena correctly. To overcome this limitation the group is developing specifically tailored microfluidic structures, the size of several micrometers and smaller, to cultivate single cells and isogenic colonies under very well defined conditions. Full spatial and temporal resolution at the single cell level is achieved by automated microscopy and subsequent image analysis.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
