Daniel Günther, M.Sc.
Daniel Günther's research addresses the development of biomimetic, PEG-based hydrogels as bioinks to recreate liver tissue microenvironments. Such engineered scaffolds replace damaged or diseased tissues, thus offering a disruptive alternative to donor organs. Hydrogel building blocks are optimized by tuning their physical, chemical and architectural properties. A major focus lies in the creation of printable hydrogels that support cell invasion of hepatocyte spheroids as well as formation and maturation of blood vessels.
