"Linked in regeneration" wants to offer young and senior scientists from Berlin to come together and discuss with internationally renowned guest speakers how to advance research into regenerative medicine and its translation into the clinics. The Lecture Series Linked in Regeneration 2018 is organized and hosted by young postdocs of the Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies.

Host: Julia Berkmann, Lisa-Marie Burkhardt (BSRT students)
Mesencymal stromal cells; Immunomodulation, Regeneration, and Immunogenicity
Martin Hoogduijn is an associate professor at the Department of Internal Medicine, section Nephrology and Transplantation, at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His research focuses on regenerative medicine in the field of organ transplantation, more precisely on cellular therapies for immunomodulation and tissue repair, with a special interest in mesenchymal stromal cells and kidney organoids. Current research projects include studies to the immunomodulatory potential of mesenchymal stem cell vesicles, the use of mesenchymal stem cells to repair transplant kidneys on machine perfusion and on the generation of kidney organoids from induced pluripotent stem cells.
Three interesting publications
- Immunomodulation By Therapeutic Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSC) Is Triggered Through Phagocytosis of MSC By Monocytic Cells
- Membrane particles generated from mesenchymal stromal cells modulate immune responses by selective targeting of pro-inflammatory monocytes
- Effects of Normothermic Machine Perfusion Conditions on Mesenchymal Stromal Cells
