Project title: “Enhancing the regeneration of bone defects in elderly: Rejuvenation of bone microenvironment” (Horizon 2020)

Bone defects resulting from traumatic injuries, tumor resection and bone diseases represent one of the most pressing health problems in the aging European population.

Currently, treatment success in elderly patients is severely limited due to the declining functionality of bone cells during aging, which results from multiple cell-intrinsic and cell-extrinsic mechanisms. The aim of our project is to develop a new multidisciplinary approach to enhance the regeneration of bone defects in elderly, based on recent advances in cellular reprogramming and tissue engineering.


Fluorescence microscopy is one of the core technologies for biomedical research and diagnostics. The large diversity of microscopy applications requires sophisticated, individually adapted image processing methods that are able to process huge amounts of data, high background signals as well as low contrast images. The correct identification of objects in micro- or nanometer range is crucial for diagnosing diseases, the prognosing their progress and examining the impact of medical treatments.


Development of an innovative LED panel enabling low level light therapy of skin specific for the phase of wound healing.  2013 - 2016

Burns, tumors or surgical interventions often result in large scale wounds that challenge the body's ability to regenerate and still represent a substancial problem for modern medicine. Low level light therapy (LLLT) offers a promising approach that has already proven effective in the treatment of dermatosis and chronic pain.
