We are developing novel therapeutic concepts against malignant brain tumors (gliomas). In particular, we are interested in reprogramming immune cells in the tumor environment (microglia and macrophages) and other endogenous immune cells (e.g. T cells) to attack the tumor. We use experimental mouse models for this purpose, but our concepts are also validated using brain tumor tissue from patients.

Medical 3D printing at the University Hospital Basel

In August, the University Hospital Basel implanted an artificial skullcap for the first time, which was specially manufactured for the patient at the USB. After several years of research and development, the USB is the first hospital in Europe to successfully produce implants that meet the requirements of international medical device standards using the 3D printing process.
