2 Development of innovative, advanced sensing solutions, in particular for biosensing applications. The sensors benefit from unique properties of applied optical fibers and thin films. As a team, within recent years we have developed advanced technological and measurement capabilities, as well as gained world-wide recognized experience within thin film technology and optical fiber sensing techniques. We work on design (numerical analysis), fabrication (thin film technology, surface processing and functionalization), measurements (surface analysis; optical, electrochemical and biosensing measurements) and applications (collaboration with industrial and scientific partners, including mechanics, physicists, material scientists, chemists, biologist and medics). Additionally, we design and fabricate optoelectronic systems for analysis of response of developed sensors, as well as tune a wide gamut of thin film deposition techniques towards their custom applications.
3 Redox activity of metal-peptide complexes Peptides are essential biomolecules associated with learning and neurodegeneration processes (Aβ peptides), the innate immune response (histatins) and wound healing (a GHK peptide). It should be emphasized that in many cases, the biological activity of such peptides is strongly related to their ability to bind transition metal cations and the redox activity of the formed metal complexes. The research aims to characterize the redox properties of the complexes of peptides with transition metal cations in terms of describing their biological activity and role in many biological processes. Moreover, new peptides and peptide metallocomplexes for pharmacological applications, including therapies for Alzheimer's disease and antimicrobial treatments, are designed. Finally, research on the application of peptide-based complexes as molecular receptors of electrochemical sensors suitable for medical and environmental diagnostics is also conducted.

The evolutionarily directed affinity of nucleic acids and antibodies toward the corresponding analytes (complementary sequences, antigens) makes them applicable, among other things, as receptors for biosensing layers of affinity biosensors. Molecular recognition occurring in several nanometer interfacial space (surface/solution) translates into a very strong response of biological sensors and obtaining low detection limits or very high sensitivity of conducted analyses. Research topics include the design and analysis of receptor layers of affinity biosensors (nucleic acids, including aptamers and antibodies) as well as the design of ready-to-use sensor solutions, including those manufactured using substrates in printed electronics technology. Such solutions, due to a high degree of miniaturization, the ability to simultaneously detection up to a dozen analytes, low cost or freedom in production scalability, have a high degree of application through integration into modern microfluidic devices and ultimately into POC type diagnostic tools.
