Polydepsipeptide Block Stabilized Polyplexes For Efficient Transfection of Primary Human Cells

Degradable block copolymers have shown great potential to combine transfection capability with low toxicity of the transfection agent. Depsipeptide blocks exhibiting strong physical interactions were conjugated with PEI moieties to di and triblock copolymers. Upon nanoparticle formation and complexation with DNA, the resulting polyplexes (sizes typically 60-150 nm) showed remarkable stability compared to PEIonly or lipoplex, and facilitated efficient gene delivery. These nanocarriers form the basis for a delivery platform-technology especially for gene transfer to primary human cells. more

Non-continuously Responding Polymeric Actuators

Current polymeric actuators move because of their continuous response to the input signals of the controlling unit and cannot be interrupted without stopping or eliminating the input trigger. The new type of non-continuously responding actuator materials are capable of pausing their movements in a defined manner upon continuous cyclic heating and cooling. more

Location Teltow

PhD Program of the Helmholtz Graduate School for Macromolecular Bioscience invites applications as
PhD students (m/f)

The Helmholtz Graduate School for Macromolecular Bioscience offers excellent interdisciplinary training in fundamental and application-oriented research in the field of macromolecular and biomaterial science.
PhD candidates benefit from the wide range of expertise and the high-end resources of the partner institutions, providing a unique synergetic education and enabling research at the frontier of research areas. The PhD curriculum comprises a broad variety of courses, lectures, and workshops enabling students to gain substantial knowledge in the main research areas and introducing them to new technologies.
The PhD program is structured according to international quality standards, individually chosen mentoring committees, and professional training in non-scientific key skills to prepare the PhD for a career in science, academia, and beyond. The Graduate School provides a regularly attended coordination office supporting the PhD students. The program’s primary language is English. more
