Biomedical and Bioengineering Internships

Apply for one of these internships through the Internship Program (IP) (deadline February 15/October 1) or the campus internship track of the Study and Internship Program (SIP) (deadline February 15).

Internship in inorganic and analytical chemistry

at Osnabrück UAS

HS Osnabrück

Supervisor

Prof. Dr. Svea Petersen

Project

Modification and characterization of polymers for medical applications

Polymers have found widespread applications in biomedicine, in particular as implant bulk or coating material or as carrier in drug delivery systems. In our lab, we focus on the establishment and characterization of surface modification reactions of polymers including the provision with a local drug delivery function and/or biofunctionalization in order to selectively control cell-implant interactions.

Tasks

  1. Chemical surface modification and biofunctionalization of polymers for enhanced biocompatibility and their characterization via contact angle measurements, FTIR, electron microscopy, etc.
  2. Establishment of polymer-based local drug delivery systems and performance of in vitro drug release studies via HPLC and fluorescence spectroscopy.

Requirements

Lab skills are desired, as independent chemical work will be required. A basic understanding of polymers and surface chemistry is desired.

Language Skills

Duration

3-6 months

Possible Beginning

Feb 15 deadline: 3 – 6 month internship between September and February; Oct. 1 deadline: 3 – 6 month internship between March and August
