Our research group is located at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and affiliated with the University of Heidelberg. Our research is focused on the synthesis and application of biofunctional materials, surfaces and nanoparticles.


From the 3rd of November to the 5th of November, the Levkin Lab had its first group Retreat with tons of interesting presentations and discussions - looking forward for more!

Congratulations to Simon for winning the Product Slam for Aquarray
( at a Cytometry  2017 conference in Jena!

Anna's paper about a miniaturized platform for single-embryo high-throughput screenings of zebra fish was accepted to Advance Functional Materials. Congratulations Anna!

Congratulations to Tina, Anna and Mona, who combined the effect of inhibition of stem cell differentiation by our polymer with the ability to create microarrays of nanoliter-sized droplets to enable high-throughput stem cell screening.

Tina´s and Anna´s paper on "Droplet microarray based on patterned superhydrophobic surfaces prevents stem cell differentiation and enables high-throughput stem cell screening" has been just accepted to Advanced Healthcare Materials as a VIP paper. Congratulations! Well done.

paper 74

Meet us in Boston, USA, in November at the MRS Symposium BM10—Bioinspired Interfacial Materials with Superwettability which we are coorganizing with Haeshin Lee, Robin Ras and Shutao Wang.

Invited speakers include Joanna Aizenberg (Harvard), David Quéré (École Polytechnique), Hans-Jürgen Butt (Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research), Lei Jiang (Chinese Academy of Science), Tom McCarthy (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), Phil Messersmith (UC Berkeley), Atsushi Hozumi (AIST), Stanislav Gorb (Kiel University), Dimos Poulikakos (ETH Zurich), Chang-Jin "CJ" Kim (UCLA), Anish Tuteja (University of Michigan), Frieder Mugele (University of Twente), Evelyn Wang (MIT), Stefan Seeger (University of Zurich)


The project "Aquarray: Miniaturization of biological screenings based on Droplet Microarrays" will be funded by the EXIST Forschungstransfer programme. The EXIST programme is competitive grant supported by the European Social Fund (ESF), European Union (EU) and the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi). The goal of the project is to support the foundation of our spin-off project Aquarray: Congratulations to Anna, Simon and Konstantin for this success!
