In Medical Biotechnology, we research new approaches to shape the medical practice of the future. At our department, the human being is the center of attention. Therefore, we do not use animal experiments and dedicate ourselves entirely to the study of human cells and tissues, which we achieve, among other things, through innovative "state of the art" culture strategies. We have been using 3D cultivation for some time, such as chip-based cultivation of cells and the application of organoid models, which we use to reproduce the cochlea and the gastrointestinal tract.
The goal is to reproduce the actual processes in the human body as lifelike as possible (in vivo) in order to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms that determine health and disease. We are convinced that our research branch will provide groundbreaking insights from which many people will benefit in the future.
