Workshop „Advanced Cell Culture Technologies”

ABOUT

What to expect Biomaterials

This workshop will include keynote lectures, short talks, poster presentations, round-table discussions and tech-demos on the topic of Advanced Cell Culture Technologies in the context of cell-based therapy products. We aim to bring together PhD students and Postdocs from this field to exchange knowledge, foster cooperation and discuss current and future needs and challenges in the field of culture technologies for cell-based therapy products. We will keep the workshop small and interactive – allowing a maximum of 60 participants.

Antonina Lavrentieva (Leibniz Universität Hannover, DE)

Antonina Lavrentieva

Antonina Lavrentieva is a group leader at the Institute of Technical Chemistry, Leibniz University of Hannover, working in the field of stem cell research, biotesting and tissue engineering. In 2022 she received the venia legendi in Technical Chemistry. In her second PhD Thesis, she studied methods of expanding mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in bioreactors, as well as the influence of hypoxia on the MSCs. She studied Biology and Life Science at Moscow State University and the Leibniz University of Hannover. She also defended a PhD Thesis in Physiology. Her current research interests include stem cell media optimization, 3D cell culture, implementation of genetically encoded sensors for 3D cell culture characterization, gradient hydrogels for studying stem cell niches and 3D-bioprinting. Currently, she is the head of advisory board of DECHEMA professional group "Medical biotechnology".

Jan Hansmann (University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, DE)

Jan Hansmann

Jan Hansmann studied Technical Cybernetics at the University Stuttgart. He conducted his Ph.D. dissertation at the Fraunhofer IGB. Following graduation, Jan Hansmann established his own group focused on developing technology platforms to facilitate generation and characterization of tissues in vitro. In 2013, Hansmann acquired funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to start his own junior research group at the University Hospital Würzburg. In addition, he was heading a group for Automation in Life Sciences at the Fraunhofer ISC, Würzburg. Since 2018, Jan Hansmann is a professor at the Technical University for Applied Sciences Würzburg/Schweinfurt. His activities at the Fraunhofer ISC are still ongoing. His scientific activities combine engineering, materials science, medicine, and biology.
