Diana Rojas studied Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng) at Universidad Autónoma de Occidente, in Cali (Colombia), and then completed her Master of Science also in Biomedical Engineering with a joint degree from Ghent University (Belgium) and RWTH-Aachen University (Germany). Diana Rojas’ expertise is in the field of cardiovascular tissue engineering. During her bachelor thesis she worked on the differentiation of bone marrow-derived stem cells towards cardiomyocytes, and their application for cardiac regeneration after an acute myocardial infarction. After her Bachelor, she continued working for 2 more years on this topic as research associate in the G-Bio research group at Universidad Autónoma de Occidente, in Colombia. During her Master thesis, she worked on the effect of mechanical stimulation on the endothelial differentiation of adipose derived stem cells. Her current field of research comprises the study of stem cells as cell source for vascular grafts, and the establishment of in vitro cardiovascular models. Diana Rojas has been working as research associate at the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants since October 2019.
