Welcome to the Surgical Research Lab

The Surgical Research Laboratory ...

... is the central research unit of the Department of General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery. The research groups located at our research unit work on projects in the fields of xenotransplantation, regenerative medicine/experimental surgery, cell therapy and oncology. The available equipment allows experimental work in cell culture and cell biology, flow cytometry, as well as molecular biology and protein biochemistry. The Surgical Research Lab not only serves as a research unit for experimental work, but also as a scientific training centre for the department. The network of established methods, instrumentation and expertise available here enables young colleagues to establish their own research interests early in their careers, despite the time-consuming surgical training.
