Bio-SPM Group (Assoc. Prof. M. Dong)

The Bio-SPM group investigates the physical and chemical properties of biomolecules and novel materials based on nano objects. To explore mechanical properties of molecules, we use harmonic AFM techniques. Another area of focus is understanding and controlling the self-assembly of nano structures. For all these studies we have developed state-of-the-art SPM techniques.

We are welcoming worldwide applications of all levels. If you are interested please send an email and your CV to Associate Prof. Mingdong Dong dong@inano.au.dk.
