Prof. Walther is a member of the steering group in the new lighthouse "Biohybrid.NRW" of innovative medicine in NRW

Biohybrid medicine links the disciplines of medicine, natural sciences and engineering. The "Biohybrid.NRW" lighthouse is interdisciplinary and addresses the following approaches, among others:

  • biologically inspired materials
  • materials containing biological and inorganic components
  • interactive materials with interfaces for biological connections

The aim is to improve medical therapies, e.g. through better tolerated or more durable implants.

Prof. Walther will also report on the progress of the DFG Research Unit 5250 in the Lighthouse.
