From Cells to Tissues to Therapies - Engineering the Cellular Basis of Regneration
Professor Michael Brand
is Director at the Center for Regenerative Therapies (CRTD) at TU Dresden. He has been Professor of Molecular Developmental Genetics at the TU Dresden since 2002. In 2016 he was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for his outstanding scientific achievements in the fields of stem cell research and developmental genetics.
His current research focuses on development and regeneration in the brain of vertebrates. He is particularly interested in the question of how stem cells contribute to the development and function, but also to the regeneration of the brain.
