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 NĂ­ 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.
