Stem Cell Modification and Biomaterials

Our “Stem Cell Modification and Biomaterials” department examines biomaterials in the context of living systems at the macroscopic as well as the microscopic levels.
On the macroscopic level, research and development of products for health and medicine are advanced. The focus lies in cardiac implants. Using biological assessments and clinical expertise, the department makes a significant contribution to the institute’s interdisciplinary translation activities.
At the microscopic level, we research cell-material interactions through cell engineering. Both levels make essential contributions to the field of “multifunctional biomaterials and the translation of medical products”. Direct clinical contact is ensured through targeted integration of activities at the BCRT Charité location in Berlin.
