PHD Student Tissue Engineering and/or Cell Therapies (M/F/D)

The INM’s research group Dynamic Biomaterials develops hydrogels to encapsulate and interface living cells. One exciting research line involves synthetic hydrogels containing light-responsive functionalities, and their application as cell-instructive materials for in vivo cell-based therapies for regeneration. To fully develop these materials into future technologies and therapies, we are looking for a PhD candidate interested in interdisciplinary and translational work between medical and materials sciences. This project is embedded in a collaboration between INM and medical partners at University Clinic Homburg.
