Research of the Achazi group is focused on elucidating cell nanoparticles interactions by using high resolution microscopy methods and real-time investigation of living cells. Of particular interest as interaction partners of cells but also pathogens such as viruses and bacteria are polyanionic nanoparticles, nanogels, or polymers as well as two dimensional materials. Due to their huge surface area they have great potential as new anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial compounds for biomedical applications.
