A dynamic research team under the supervision of a postdoctoral researcher dr. Bert Van den Bogerd, supported by Professor Carina Koppen (Head of Ophthalmology department UZA) and Professor Sorcha Ní Dhubhghaill.
Our focus lies on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine of the anterior eye segment or cornea.
Besides extensive preclinical research in these areas, we have translated a xenofree cultured limbal stem cell therapy to the clinic. Currently, we have finished a multicentric phase II clinical trial with a stem cell product that is developed and produced in our own FAGG accredited clean rooms.
