Applied Biochemistry


Team Bioprinting

(Group leaders Dr. Johanna Berg, Dr. Beatrice Tolksdorf).

We develop 3D organ models. Modern 3D bio-printing techniques are used to generate and physiologically characterize human models for the lung and liver.
We then use the organ models for further studies, for example for infection experiments and for the use of RNA interference (RNAi) technology as an antiviral strategy.
