Maxillofacial Bone Regeneration
We are a young group working on bone regeneration of the facial structures. Patients with maxillofacial bone defects need bone tissue substitutes to reshape their face, to speak and to anchor teeth for chewing food. These bone defects may arise from an accident, cancer, infection or due to congenital malformations. Our team focusses on creating bone tissues in the lab from stem cells that can be harvested from adults. We combine stem cells with state-of-the-art regenerative technologies to recapitulate natural tissue development and regeneration.
