BioTex – Biohybrid & Medical Textiles
The main focus of the NRW-Schwerpunktprofessur Biohybrid & Medical Textiles, in short: BioTex, is the development of biohybrid implants, which are produced from the patient's own cells.
In order to ensure sufficient strength and long-term stability of these implants, a textile reinforcing structure is introduced into the new cultured tissue during the manufacturing process.
For this reason, the working group is very interdisciplinary and includes scientists from the fields of materials research, engineering and medicine.
