5th Retreat: Cooperative Research Training Group „Tissue analytics for stem cell based diagnostics and therapy“
The cooperative research training group “Tissue analytics for stem cell based diagnostics and therapy” is located at the Medical Faculty Mannheim of the University Heidelberg and the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim and funded by the Baden-Württemberg Landesgraduiertenförderung Program. The newly founded training research group unites ten international research groups with complementary expertise in life sciences, medicine, device development as well as biomedical computing. Major topics are the use of stem cells under different conditions (chronic wounds, muscle and nerve regeneration, kidney disease), the development of evaluation techniques like tissue clearing and the assessment of functional tissue parameters like for example oxygenation. Special emphasis will be put on the evaluation of 3D-data, their segmentation and quantification.
