Co-founder, Chief Executive Officer
Caghan Kizil is W2 tenured professor of neuroscience at German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) within Helmholtz Association in Germany and Visiting Associate Professor at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, NY, USA. His research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of regeneration in nervous system after neurodegeneration by using animal models and in vitro 3D human brain cultures. He received several awards including Helmholtz Young Investigator Award, Helmholtz Validation Funds of the President's Initiative, DZNE Innovation-to-Application Award, and Columbia University Schaefer Research Scholars Award.
Co-founder, Scientific Advisor
Carsten Werner is professor for Biofunctional Polymer Materials at the Technische Universität Dresden, Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden and directs the Biomaterials program at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden/Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials Dresden (Germany). His research aims at recapitulating functionalities of living matter in engineered polymer materials and includes studies on electrosurface phenomena, hemocompatibility of biomaterials and cell-instructive materials platforms for regenerative therapies and tissue models.
Uwe Freudenberg is group leader for Matrix Engineering at the Institute of Biofunctional Polymer Materials at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany (IPF). He received his doctoral degree (Dr.-Ing.) from the Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the Technische Universität Dresden in 2007. His current research focuses on the development of multifunctional polymer materials for biomedical applications with special emphasis on GAG-based hydrogels.
