Innovative methods. International experts.
The Clinic for Urology at the Tübingen University Hospital researches in various areas and is specialised in fields such as the development of diagnostic procedures, reconstructive urology, tissue engineering and new therapies with the patient’s own stem cells.
Team of the Clinical Research Group KFO273.
For example, a new implant of a membrane and the patient’s own cells for the treatment of certain bladder defects is being developed at the Urology’s specialised laboratory within the scope of a clinical study. Therapies with the patient’s own cells also play a main role in the Clinical Research Group (KFO273) that is sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Together with the partners of the University of Stuttgart and the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute in Reutlingen, we are working on new methods for the treatment of urinary incontinence with the patient’s own stem cells. More than 30 scientists, medical employees, assistants and students are currently involved with these two topics and further research projects at the Tübingen Urology. This work is supported by the German Research Foundation, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and various foundations. They are embedded within an international network of experts that has been funded by the European Commission (COST BM1209).
