About

Regeneration is the renewal of degenerated or lost cells, tissues or organs within an organism. Such regenerative processes are mainly based on the action of specific stem or progenitor cells that possess the capacity to proliferate and differentiate into the required cell-types. This Regenerative and Degenerative Biology programme is offered at TU Dresden.

Overview

About the programme

In this Regenerative and Degenerative Biology programme at TU Dresden the mechanisms of regeneration and stem cell function are studied to understand general principles of cellular and tissue repair with the aim to use this knowledge to develop novel therapies.

Diverse strategies for in depth genetic, molecular and cellular analysis are used to dissect fundamental pathways of tissue regeneration. Animals with high regenerative capacities are utilized to understand intrinsic mechanisms of regeneration as models to induce tissue repair also in mammals.

Additionally, the controlled expansion and directed differentiation of stem cells towards specific target cell-types is assessed to develop cell replacement strategies for currently incurable diseases.

Programme Structure

Research groups include:

  • Development of cell-based therapies for the treatment of retinopathies
  • Tumorimmunology
  • Neural Development and Regeneration
  • Development and Regeneration of the Vertebrate Brain
  • Mechanobiology of Stem Cells
  • Cell biology of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Stem Cells in Pancreas Development and Disease
  • Unraveling mechanisms of neuronal degeneration and regeneration in the retina
