Pre-Clinical Characterization

The “Pre-Clinical Characterization” department studies the molecular basis of an essential process: how does body tissue build up, as a magnesium implant in an animal model degrades or changes over time? We track the physiological processes that take place using imaging methods, innovative sensor technology, tissue sample analyses and various omics technologies, with which biomolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins are recorded as completely as possible. Thus, our work functions as a major bridge to clinical application.
