Nerve Regeneration; Schwann Cells

Research group(s)

  • ARGE Radtke
    Research Area: cell based therapies and spider silk conduits for peripheral nerve regeneration

Research interests

My main research focus is to deepen the knowledge about the cellular changes and competences of Schwann cells during nerve repair. In addition, we investigate and improve spider silk based nerve conduits for future clinical application. These studies aim to develop novel treatment strategies for patients with large peripheral nerve defects.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • culture of primary cells of neuronal and glial origin, particularly human Schwann cells
  • multicolor immunofluorescence stainings
  • confocal imaging (LEICA SP8X)
  • proteome & transcriptome expression analyses
  • quantitative antibody-based read-out techniques
