Our interdisciplinary research team is interested in understanding cell-material interactions on different length scales. Based on fundamental biophysical principles, we develop new biofabrication techniques to prepare fibrous and porous biopolymer scaffolds for cell culture studies. The results of our research will be highly interesting for the development of multifunctional biomaterials for future tissue engineering applications.
Our research has been presented not only in scientific journals but also in local and national press, as well as on the TV and radio. Through broad media coverage our research becomes accessible to general public without extensive scientific background. So far we could report on our findings in buten un binnen, NDR Info, Bremen Zwei and other media.
To understand the mechanisms of in vitro fiber assembly and to develop new fibrous biomaterials for tissue engineering we work in a very interdisciplinary team of physicists, biologists, material scientists and chemists. Furthermore, we cooperate with other national and international research groups in the fields of materials and life science.
