New Professor at the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants

After her appointment as professor by President Prof. Herrmann, Petra Mela took over the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants on August 1st. Her last position was at the Institute for Applied Medical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University, where she worked on the development of tissue-engineered cardiovascular implants. With Prof. Mela, the chair will receive a new research focus in the field of biohybrid systems. We are pleased to welcome Prof. Mela to the chair and would like to thank Prof. Lüth for taking over the provisional leadership and for his great support during the transition period.
