Area of Research

My research team investigates the biology and therapeutic potential of adipose-derived cells for regenerative applications and aims to extend them into clinical trials. The main research topics are:

1) Engineering of tissues, in particular bone and cartilage, by innovative cell culture models of human adipose-derived cells, and investigation of the processes involved,

2) Use of the vasculogenic properties of adipose-derived cells to improve the in vivo engraftment of cells and engineered tissues,

3) Priming and activation of the function of engineered matrices by adipose-derived cells,

4) Importance of adipose-cells in the engraftment of adipose tissue upon lipotransfer. One of the strategies led to a Phase I clinical study on bone augmentation in fractures from osteoporotic patients.
