Research Team

The Tissue Biology Research Unit was established in January 2001 by Prof. Martin Meuli, Prof. Urs Stauffer, and Prof. Dr. Ernst Reichmann based on the philosophy that many unsolved clinical problems are best addressed if clinicians and basic scientists unite and agree upon a common mission that is fueled by a common spirit. (the new organigram is coming soon)
