Research Activities

The main focus of my research work is to develop in vitro cartilage models that can be used for testing novel candidate drugs for the treatment of Osteoarthritis (OA). For that, bioengineering approaches will be applied for standardized differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) into articular chondrocytes. Personalized models of OA will be generated and are expected to provide new insights on the complex pathophysiology of the disease and to allow the discovery and testing of new drugs.
