  1. Young Scientist Award for Katja Schenke-Layland

    For her outstanding research in heart valve tissue engineering, Fraunhofer researcher Katja Schenke-Layland has been awarded the 2014 Young Scientist Award of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society – European Chapter (TERMIS-EU).

  2. Hope for Heart Attack Patients

    The team of Katja Schenke-Layland has discovered cell surface markers that enable the identification of living cardiovascular progenitor cells (CPCs). Furthermore, the team was able to derive CPCs from induced-pluripotent stem cells (iPS), and these cells were able to integrate into the hearts of living mice.
