Munich Multiscale Biofabrication Network

The Munich Multiscale Biofabrication Network brings together scientists from research institutions in the greater Munich area who are actively engaged in the design and control of biological matter across a wide range of spatial scales. Using a unique combination of tools from nanotechnology, additive manufacturing, and synthetic biology, Munich BioFab researchers attempt to build functional bioinspired structures from biological and non-biological components, which are structured in three dimensions with nanometer precision up to the macroscopic scale.

Applications for such synthetic biological structures range from intelligent biomaterials and biomimetic systems over advanced biomedical sensors, soft nano- and microrobotics, to the realization of biomolecular synthesis machines.
