CV

Prof. Dr. Katja Schenke-Layland currently holds a dual appointment as Professor at the University Women’s Hospital at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, and the Director of the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute (NMI) Reutlingen, Germany. She is also the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Tissue Engineering, Part B, and an Executive Editor for Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, which is, one of the top journals in the field of advanced drug delivery. Katja is the Study Dean for Medical Technology at the University Tübingen and sits on the board of multiple journals and biomedical associations. Katja is a biologist with a main interest in stem cell, developmental and extracellular matrix biology. Her work focuses on the translation of developmental processes into clinically relevant biomaterials and regenerative therapy strategies, and the development of diagnostic tools to discover and validate therapeutic candidates and diagnose diseases.

 

Abstract

As the field of regenerative and personalized medicine matures, the need for novel enabling technologies to characterize cells and engineered constructs (i.e. cells/tissue combined with scaffolds and/or growth factors) as well as their individual components in a more insightful, quantitative and preferably non-invasive manner becomes imperative. Raman microspectroscopy is an emerging technique based on light scattering that allows assessing molecular interactions and the biochemical structure of a sample in a non-invasive manner. Specifically for tissue engineering applications, it has been proven to allow determining biochemical information on cells, tissues and/or material-cell tissue constructs without the need for labels.
