Welcome to the bright side of nanotechnology and skin research!   

Welcome to the research group of Prof. Dr. Cornelia M. Keck in Marburg.



 ·      is the science and technology of small things.  

·      It uses the fact that the properties of many materials change when the size reaches the nanometer scale.  

We use nanotechnology

 ·      to improve the efficacy of pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical and nutraceutical actives.  

We develop tailor-made nanocarriers:

 ·      to improve the shelf life of chemically labile actives  

·      to improve the solubility of poorly soluble actives  

·      to improve the penetration of actives  

·      to increase the bioavailability of actives  

Our carriers can be formulated in different ways, examples are:

 ·     tablets, capsules, pellets  

·      creams, gels  

·      liquids, sprays, foams  

The nanocarrier-based formulations can be applied in different ways, examples are:

·      oral administration  

·      dermal administration  

·      ocular administration  

·      intraveneous administration  

·      pulmonal administration
