Welcome to the Garrido group (E25)

Our group explores the use of carbon-based functional materials, such as diamond, graphene, and organic semiconductors for applications in biosensing and bioelectronics.
In this context, our research focuses on various aspects of material preparation and characterization, advanced semiconductor technology, surface modification and surface biofunctionalization, as well as specific issues related to in-electrolyte device characterization.
We are interested in fundamental questions concerning electronic transport at electrified solid/liquid interfaces, electron transfer across inorganic/(bio)organic interfaces,  biomolecule/surface interactions, surface-based sensing mechanisms, cell – transistor coupling, etc.
A selection of the research activities conducted in our group can be found here. Contact Jose A. Garrido for any further information on our group.



Our work is funded by several institutions including the German Research Foundation DFG, the Nanosystems Initiative Munich NIM, and the European Union (MATCON, NEUROCARE and the Graphene Flagship).
