The Department of Cell Biology-Inspired Tissue Engineering focuses on molecular and cellular techniques for regeneration of tissue and organs. Cell-cell interactions as well as molecular mechanisms are studied. Aberrations during pathologies are investigated. Furthermore, computer modelling will allow an additional more complex insight. All this knowledge is used to develop novel therapies with a strong translational vision.
Cells or derivatives thereof are combined with biomaterials and molecular cues. Immunereactions are taken into consideration as well, in order to make the innovative regenerative therapy successful. The department works in a highly interdisciplinary fashion and provides a research line from basic science to translational application.
