Dr. Katrin Splith is head of the Surgical Research Laboratory at the MHH. Her research interests are the clinical relevance of cellular and non-cellular immune responses in ACLF. She has studied the mechanisms of liver regeneration, focusing on the potential role of stem cells, cfDNA and microparticles. She is also investigating the role of purinergic signalling in liver regeneration and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Dr. Splith studied chemistry at the University of Leipzig, Germany. In 2011, she completed her PhD on "Delivery of bioactive organometallic compounds by an antimicrobial peptide-derived carrier" at the Institute of Biochemistry in Leipzig. After a short postdoctoral stay at the Institute of Biochemistry in Cologne, she joined the group of Prof. Dr. Schmelzle at the Translational Centre for Regenerative Medicine (TRM) at the University of Leipzig in 2012. In 2016, she returned to the group of Professor Schmelzle at the University Hospital of the Charité in Berlin, and in 2022, she became the head of the group of Professor Schmelzle at the MHH.
