Welcome at the Transregio 67: Functional biomaterials for controlling healing processes in bone and skin tissue – from material to clinic

The demographic trends in Germany and other industrialized nations result in a considerable increase in patients with bone defects and chronic wounds. This requires the development of novel functional biomaterials, which improve bone and skin regeneration in an aging, multimorbid population.  New knowledge about the role of the extracellular matrix (ECM) for the regeneration of tissues opens new opportunities for the design of innovative biomaterials. The structure and composition of ECM significantly influences cellular differentiation and function and the healing of tissues. The aim of the TRR 67 is to develop and investigate novel functional biomaterials based on artificial (a) ECM. Essential functional components of these materials are glycosaminoglycan derivatives and proteoglycan analogues in combination with structural proteins or synthetic carrier substances.

Gender Bias: How to act!
Dr. Nicola Byok (Leadership-Strategies)

In practice, despite equality concepts, equality officers, support measures and an increased awareness of the need for equal opportunities, there are still hurdles and a need for action. In the workshop, the participants will be informed and encouraged to exchange information about the following: What gender biases exist at universities and how do they work? Which barriers do especially young female scientists face at universities? Which options for action/good practices have proven successful.

The career talk and workshop will take place online. A computer with camera and microphone is required for participation.

Equal Opportunities in Academic Teaching
Melanie Bittner (Toolbox Gender&Diversity in Academic Teaching at FU Berlin)

Student diversity is part of the reality of everyday university life. However, there are still inequalities based on race, class, gender and other social categories in higher education. What does this mean for your courses? How can you create a space that considers the diversity of students as positive value and actively contributes to equal opportunities for all students?  This interactive presentation will focus on the reflection of inequality in higher education as well as hands-on-advice for academic teaching.

Networking for Young Female Researchers
Siofra McSherry (Scienza Science Coaching Berlin)

It is widespread consensus that networking skills are a vital ingredient in a successful academic career. Yet, we rarely talk about the gender-specific challenges that female researchers face in this area. The workshop will interactively elaborate on the issue and help develop approaches to action.
