Welcome to the page of

BioPhysics Group at AAU

We are part of Physics and Nanotechnology Department at Aalborg University. The focal point of our research and teaching is the behaviour of soft matter and biological objects on nanoscale.

 You will find here the up to date information about our projects and activities.


BioPhysics Group

About us

The BioPhysics group has a diverse profile, the interactions between the members of the group naturally leads to interdisciplinary research activities.

The focus of the group has been on expression of peptides and proteins, synthesis and functionalization of various organic as well as inorganic nanostructures, and molecular electronics with emphasis on charge transport through nanostructures such as DNA and peptide nanowires.

Major projects:

Antimicrobial Peptides - Structure function relationships

Somatostatin receptor II: A cancer target

Surfactant Peptides

DNA-based molecular electronics

Nano-structured surfaces for cell research

Controlled drug release from modified surfaces

Ultrasensitive biosensors

International PhD School Aug. 26-30 2013 

The School is aimed on providing theoretical background and “hands-on” experience in applications of SPM in Life Sciences, Soft Matter and Nanofabrication. The School will offer lectures and training by internationally renowned scientiscs, including Ned Seeman (New York University), Yuri Lyubchenko (Univ. of Nebraska) and Alexander Kotlyar (Tel-Aviv University). The SPM equipment will be provided by NT-MDT Europe BV.

Journal of Self-Assembly and Molecular Electronics

This is a new joint project of BioPhysics Group and River Publishers.

Self-Assembly and Molecular Electronics (SAME) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, specializing in the areas of molecular electronics and self assembly systems. SAME encourages original cross-disciplinary full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, state-of-the-art reviews.
