Sebastian Eggert is a post-doctoral researcher at the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants and he is interested in developing customized engineering solutions for tissue engineering applications for automated, reproducible and standardized research workflows.
Before his current position, Sebastian studied mechanical engineering in his bachelor's and master's degree at the Technical University of Munich and conducted research in the field of organ-on-chips and biofabrication. Afterwards, he undertook his PhD studies at the Queensland University of Technology (Australia) and developed an open-source technology platform for automated manufacturing and screening of 3D cell culture models. In his PhD studies, he highlighted that process automation is a much-needed tool for 3D cell culture research as well as translational studies to increase reproducibility and throughput, resulting in time, labor, and consequently cost reductions.
