Research focus

In the field of tissue and tumor engineering we recreate complex tissues in a laboratory setting. One of the building blocks we use for this process are spheroids, which are clusters of cells with various interesting properties. By studying spheroids we aim to improve reconstructive and therapeutic options. To study these spheroids in detail, we are developing intelligent analytic tools, which help to maximize our understanding and results.
