Dr. Matthias Hartlieb

My current work focusses on the development of Biomaterials, specifically antimicrobial polymers. My vision is to advance these polymer compounds in such a way, that one day they might supplement or even substitute completely antibiotics to counteract the danger that antimicrobial resistance poses on our society.

I am associated with the PNB through the Brandenburg Postdoc Award I received in 2021. In addition, I am fortunate to receive funding from the Emmy Noether program of the DFG until the end of 2026. I am hoping to be able to stay in academia and continue my research as achieving my goals will take some time.
