On February 16 and 17, the Institute of Medical Biotechnology hosted the International SAOT Workshop on Modern Biophotonics in collaboration with the Erlangen Graduate School of Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT). In this scientific event, several international experts presented fascinating lectur...

Towards a natural source for muscle tissue production, we recently achieved a new milestone together with our collaboration partner blacbird technologies. On the 18th of January, we started setting up the new MyoBio v.2 prototype. Despite its broad application, the MyoBio was generally designed to p...

Whether demonstrating novel in-house engineered 3D printed tools for biomedical research applications, or a providing hands-on to a unique opto-biomechatronics system to characterise muscle structure-function relationships and to characterise mobility performance in single muscle cells, MBT was also...
