Andreas Lendlein is Professor for Materials in Life Sciences at University Potsdam and Professor in Chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin as well as member of the medical faculty of Charité University Medicine Berlin. He is Director of the Institute of Biomaterial Science at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Teltow, Germany, and Board of Directors Member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies, Berlin.
Andreas Lendlein completed his habilitation thesis in Macromolecular Chemistry in 2002 at the RWTH Aachen University, worked as a visiting scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and received his doctoral degree in Materials Science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich in 1996.
His research interests in material science are polymer-based biomaterials with special emphasis given to multifunctional materials, stimuli-sensitive polymers, especially shape-memory polymers, and biomimetic polymers. Furthermore he explores potential applications of such biomaterials in biofunctional implants, controlled drug delivery systems, and regenerative therapies.
Andreas Lendlein received more than 20 awards for his scientific work, and his achievements as an entrepreneur and serves on the editorial board of several scientific journals.
