LOEWE-FLOW FOR LIFE mini-symposium on biomaterials and tissue engineering on 3 July 2024, from 1 pm

The majority of promising drug candidates are not authorised for the treatment of humans as they prove to be ineffective or, in the worst case, harmful, even after successful trials on animals. This high failure rate shows that animal models cannot adequately represent human tissue. Artificially produced biological tissue offers an alternative. This topic and therapeutic approaches to tissue engineering will be the subject of the mini-symposium organised by LOEWE-FLOW FOR LIFE on 3 July 2024. The event will start at 1 p.m. and take place in the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus at the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt.

The LOEWE-FLOW FOR LIFE mini-symposium will feature various presentations by renowned researchers, which will be complemented by a poster session in which young scientists will present their projects.
