Mechanobiological investigations of muscles, cartilage and bones as well as biotechnological life support systems are at the centre of the Space Biology research area.
Biological life support systems are essential for manned space flight. With the conquest of space, these systems are becoming increasingly important.
The focus is on bioreactors that can be used on earth and in space. Of central interest to the research team at the Biosciene and Medical Engineering Competence Center is the production of biofuels and industrial building materials.
Therefore, researchers took part in the 34th parabolic flight of the German Aerospace Center in Bordeaux. They investigated the influence of gravity on biological cells.
