At the DFG-Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), our mission is to understand the biology of stem cells and physiological and pathological tissue and organ repair in order to develop new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, haematological diseases, such as leukemia, metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, and bone diseases. Our scientists are encouraged to think outside the box and to explore untapped areas of knowledge in the regenerative potential of the human body, and to apply this knowledge to prevent or reverse disease processes.

To achieve our aims, we strongly support interdisciplinary research, with eighteen core groups in a network of 87 principal investigators from diverse research institutes on the Dresden campus, with expertise in everything from the biology of cells and tissues to biomaterials to nanoengineering. CRTD has become a major driving force on campus and is ready to meet the challenges of moving new interventional strategies from bench to bedside.
