Director: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dirk Strunk


OUR goal is to advance cell-based therapy and regenerative medicine by developing broadly applicable technology platforms for human cell-based therapy with a focus on hiPSC vs. adult stem cells, human platelet lysate (hPL) and cell-derived EVs in various diseases (see our projects).
