The regeneration of musculoskeletal defects is not yet fully understood. Therefore, in long-term we want to contribute to the development of new therapy concepts in case of impaired healing by focusing on various cell types.

Our research group “Cell Biology” investigates the biology of adult stem cells, immune cells, endothelial precursors and fibroblasts as well as their possible role in musculoskeletal tissue regeneration. We are looking at the interaction between cells, mechanics and the extracellular matrix. Furthermore, we are concentrating on alterations of intrinsic cell functions in response to extrinsic stimuli, such as age or an altered immune response. Our long-term goal is to develop new therapeutic approaches to improve musculoskeletal tissue regeneration, especially for impaired healing cases.
