KIT Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)
The Institute for Microstructure Technology (IMT) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology deals with the development of micro- and nanotechnologies for life science, biotechnology, power generation, light management, and data communication as well as sensor technology.
Key areas include the development of assays, lab-on-chip (microfluidic) systems, organ-on-chip biosensors, biomolecule synthesis, functional bio-surfaces, and high-throughput screening technologies.
With more than 9,000 employees, KIT is the largest research institution in Germany and one of the largest in the world. The IMT has been on the campus of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) since its foundation in the late 1950s and employs around 170 people. It makes a significant contribution to academic teaching through the comprehensive training of M.Sc. and Ph.D. students.
