ÖGBMT Working Group: Cell Based Assays, Therapies and Products - Banner

Who we are

The Working Group Cell Based Assays, Therapies and Products is an initiative of the former members of the ÖGTERM (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Tissue Engineering und Regenerative Medizin) Board, who decided to join the ÖGMBT in order to synergistically expand the field of scientific activities within ÖGMBT to topics in Regenerative Medicine.

Our aims

The Working Group Cell Based Assays, Therapies and Products aims at supporting the interaction of scientists, provides and disseminates information on current topics in the field in the field of basic and applied research on human cells and tissue engineering, cell-based assays, therapies and products. The Working Group supports the interdisciplinary exchange on current research approaches and methods in order to achieve an efficient use of existing competences and expertise and organizes events, such as seminars, symposia and round table discussions, addressing various target groups from various disciplines (e.g. from biological/technological disciplines, natural sciences, medical fields and social sciences as well as user groups/companies) and different background and levels (e.g. students, researchers, public relations officers/journalists).

What we offer

  • Strengthening the network of research groups in basic and applied cell-based assays, therapies and products in Austria
  • Promoting and supporting efforts for active exchange on methodological base
  • Promotion of young researchers
  • Creating an information and communication platform for scientists and public provision of information

Who should join

Persons from different disciplines, background and levels actively working and/or interested in current topics the rapidly evolving field of Cell Based Assays, Therapies and Products.

How to join

Registered ÖGMBT members can manage their ÖGMBT Working Groups memberships in the Intranet menue under MyData. 

What you can expect

  • Invitations to workshops, seminars and platform discussion
  • Activation of exchange on practical level (e.g. lab protocols, technology offer)


This was the Workshop „Advanced Cell Culture Technologies”, Fri., March 17, 2023, BOKU, Vienna

The Working Group Cell Based Assays, Therapies and Products organized the first workshop "Advanced Cell Culture Technologies" on March 17, 2023

It was a great pleasure to organize and host the ÖGMBT workshop “Advanced Cell Culture Technologies” of the ÖGMBT working group “Cell based assays, therapies and products” at BOKU. It was an intense day full of exciting talks, lively discussions and networking activities.

We would like to thank all participants and the organizers of the ÖGMBT and BOKU for making this event a great success; special thanks go to our keynote speakers PD Dr. Antonina Lavrentieva and Prof. Dr. Jan Hansmann, who shared unique insights into how cells perceive their 3D environment and how automation can enhance our research output. Congratulations to our poster prize winners Sonya Ciulean (Fraunhofer IZI, Leipzig, Germany) and Julia Moldaschl (BOKU), who won free admission for the next ÖGMBT Annual Meeting in Salzburg.

This workshop was supported by PL BioScience GmbH and organized by Cornelia Kasper, Dominik Egger & Farhad Chariyev-Prinz.
