Dominik Egger received his master degree in Life Science at the University of Hannover in 2014. The master thesis was on optimization of culture conditions for mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with an emphasis on guided differentiation in 3D matrices. His research focused on the application of fluid shear stress with a specialized perfusion bioreactor.
He continued his doctoral studies on the conceptual implementation of physiologic culture conditions for human MSCs at Prof. Kaspers lab at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences and finished his PhD studies (Dr.rer.nat) with highest honors (summa cum laude) by 2017. Currently, he is working as a University Assistant and postdoctoral researcher on new approaches for the isolation and expansion of hMSCs with a focus on 3D cell culture and bioreactor technology.
