Sebastian’s main research topic is molecular communication (MC), which is used in medical applications. Nanotechnology makes it possible to construct extremely small electronic devices. For example, tiny drug tanks can be placed in the human body directly at a tumor or a focus of inflammation and release doses of active ingredient in response to a signal from outside. However, it is difficult to control the electronics inside the body by radio. Molecular communication is therefore attempting to use biological communication systems for this purpose. In his dissertation, Sebastian Lotter maps the synaptic communication of nerve cells deterministically and stochastically in various models, thus providing valuable insights into the communication of neurons.
