    Research Interests

    Max joined our group in February '21. In his research work he focuses on using the transglutaminase activity of Factor XIIIa to immobilize drug proteins on human tissue. This can lead to a prolongation of the effect of the proteins, so that applications that are particularly unpleasant for the patient need to applied less frequently. The specific design of a linker between drug proteins and tissue also makes it possible to achieve a bio-responsive release to external stimuli, such as upregulation of proteases in the event of disease. This bio-responsive release has the practical benefit that proteins can be present in the body as a depot beforehand and released rapidly and locally in the event of disease, resulting in a milder disease progression and fewer side effects of the drug.
