Nature as a model for technology

The large area of materials research is a new field within Geist Heidelberg. Natural materials such as wood, bones, mussel shells, glass sponges, protein fibers or insect carapaces provide ideas for the development of new material concepts.

Peter Fratzl, one of the pioneers in the field of biological and biomimetic materials and one of the most exposed representatives of modern science, has his say. He investigates the relationship between (hierarchical) structure and mechanical behavior of biological and bio-inspired composites and focuses on osteoporosis and bone regeneration.

Prof. Dr. Peter Fratzl is one of the pioneers in the field of biological and biomimetic materials. In particular, he studies the relationship between (hierarchical) structure and mechanical behavior of biological and bio-inspired composites. His areas of work also include basic and clinically oriented research on osteoporosis and bone regeneration. Among other things, interdisciplinary research with cultural studies and design faculty complements his research activities.
