    Dr. Luxenhofer studied chemistry at the TU München and at the Sydney University. As a PhD student, also at the TU München and Postdoc (at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Ohama, NE, USA and TU Dresden, Germany) he developed novel types of poylmerizations and laid the foundation to study the interaction of synthetic biomaterials and biological systems. The research interests of Prof. Luxenhofer are novel drug delivery systems for highly hydrophobic drugs as well as proteins and RNA/DNA. In particular, we are interested in structure/property relationships governing the interactions between the polymer and its cargo. Moreover, we develop novel polymers and polymerization methods as well as novel materials for the biofabrication and

    tissue engineering.
