Biomacromolecular and Bioanalogous Systems BIOMOL
The field of research, in general terms, defined as "polymer systems for medicine, better quality of life and biotechnologies" is very topical, due to its growing importance and it is attracting a great deal of attention in the professional community as well as among the general public. The approaches developed in the BIOMOL here rank among the most progressive.
Each team is focused on one of the current trends in research on polymers for biological systems and medical applications. Together they cover the whole field without significant overlaps between the teams, and deliberately benefiting from sharing the instrumentation, knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of bio/material interactions.
BIOMOL represents the core of the Institute’s participation in the project of the Biomedical and
Biotechnology Centre in Vestec (BIOCEV), which is composed jointly of six institutes of the ASCR and theCharles University in Prague.
Participation in BIOCEV will make it possible to form joint interdisciplinary research teams comprising polymer chemists and materials scientists, as well as biologists.
