At the BSRT, innovative research is conducted in the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field of Regenerative Medicine which combines pure science, material science, clinical disciplines, and biotechnology with the goal of repairing or replacing tissues and organs impaired by ageing, disease, trauma, or congenital abnormalities. Regenerative Medicine is a new interdisciplinary field of research aiming at stimulating the regenerative potential of the human body. Therefore cells are combined with factors and if necessary also with biomaterials to heal diseased cells, tissues and organs, to restore their functions or to support their regeneration. The BSRT focuses on four disease areas: diseases of the immune, the cardiovascular, the musculoskeletal, and the nervous system.
The graduate school encompasses the disciplines of Cell- und Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Engineering, Material Sciences, Physics, Chemistry and Medicine.
