Pavel Levkin, a polychemist, made his scientific breakthrough by synthesising new polymer systems that regulate the interaction between living cells and modified surface structures. Levkin developed molecular chip technology for this purpose which enables gene cells to be effectively manipulated. With his research, the Moscow-born scientist is working at the interface between polymer research, microtechnology and biomedical applications. He also uses his deep knowledge of chemical applications to find new approaches to biological issues. Levkin's research unit at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology works on strategies for modifying surfaces with porous biofilms on which living cells can grow.
