PhD with distinction for research on bioactive extracellular components


Congratulations to Johannes Hackethal, who just finished his doctoral thesis with distinction at the University of Natural Resources and Life Science, Vienna!

Being trained as a biomedical engineer, his prime research field is human material-based tissue engineering by using human waste tissues (placenta, liposuction fat). During his doctoral thesis, Johannes has established new effective methods to isolate non-cellular components from human placenta for research to replace animal material-based biomaterials, and for potential clinical applications such as wound healing or Duchenne muscular dystropy.

Currently, Johannes is working on human material-based vascularization strategies, to engineer larger scale human tissue.
