"Im Kleinen liegt verborgen oft eine große Kraft", sagt ein altes Sprichwort.

Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Alexiou has already discovered this for tumor science and works together with his team on improving chemotherapy using magnetic nanoparticles. Therefore he is winner of the Innovationspreis der deutschen Hochschulmedizin 2009 and the Anton-von-Troeltsch-Award 2011 of the german society of otorhinolaryngology, head- and neck surgery.

The Section for Experimental Oncology and Nanomedicine offers analytical services and toxicological investigationsto the industry and to external partners. Furthemore the research group is engaged in a number of projects:
