Department for Biomedical Research

Faculty of Health and Medicine

The Department for Biomedical Research focuses on the development of systems and technologies for extracorporeal blood purification, in particular on adsorbent-based technologies for liver support or immunomodulation in sepsis.

Blood compatible materials, cell culture models to study endothelial activation under septic conditions, the influence of anticoagulation on the blood compatibility of extracorporeal therapies, as well as the multiple roles of extracellular vesicles and their biological activity are in the center of our research.

An interdisciplinary team, highest quality standards, the continuous development of our spectrum of methods, as well as a network of partners from industry, academia and clinics provide an excellent basis to transfer our research into clinical application.
