Niko HILDEBRANDT : Group Presentation

We have moved to Rouen (Laboratoire COBRA).

Please visit our new website:

The NanoBioPhotonics group is a young interdisciplinary team comprised of chemists, physicists, and biochemists who are joining their expertises to create and develop novel biosensing technologies and integrate these into real-life bioapplications in cooperation with other academic groups and industrial partners.

Our main focus is the application of Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) using lanthanide complexes, quantum dot nanocrystals, and organic dyes. Using time resolved optical spectroscopy and imaging technologies we fully exploit the unique advantages of these luminescent markers for ultra-sensitive multiplexed detection, e.g., for in vitro diagnostics or live cell investigations.
