Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine, Certificate

  • Application Deadline
  • 11 days


  • In the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering scientific disciplines including medicine, biology, materials science, engineering and chemistry to name a few, are joint to tackle the challenging problem of restoring tissue function. Regeneration of tissue damage is a complex process that involves inflammation, wound healing and remodeling. This process comprises of a microenvironment in which an intricate interplay of cells, mediators and extracellular matrix accomplish regeneration. The post-damage microenvironment of tissues requires a stringent regulation, without which adverse reactions, such as fibrosis may develop. In several diseases tissue damage may extend beyond the intrinsic repair capacity of the human body. Therefore, Regenerative Medicine aims at the regeneration of damaged tissues or organs by employing and augmenting physiological regeneration mechanisms by application of stem cells, mediators and biomaterials.
  • During this summer school on cardiovascular regenerative medicine, the problem will be addressed from various angles. Guest lectures from clinically oriented scientists with a variety of different backgrounds ranging from e.g. medicine, cell biology, materials science and chemistry are combined with visits to companies which are involved in commercializing regenerative medicine one way or another.
  • You will take part in an interactive programme with international students from different scientific backgrounds and jointly provide innovative solutions for cardiovascular problems encountered in regenerative medicine.
