About me

I am a biochemistry PhD student working on different tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications, especially on 3D bioprinting. Being able to hold a living tissue between my hands was the main motive for me to start studying on these subjects and now, being able to hold a “synthetic living tissue” between my hands is the main goal for me to continue my academic career. Göpfrich group is one of the pioneering groups in the subject and I am so happy to be able to work with these people!
