Dr. Debby Gawlitta is an associate Professor working on maxillofacial tissue regeneration, particularly focusing on bone regeneration. She is inspired by the natural mechanisms of the body for bone development and repair in her regenerative strategies. Consequently, one of her research lines revolves around recapitulation of the natural direct mechanism for bone formation (intramembranous), which is accompanied by blood vessel formation. Additionally, she investigates bone regeneration from a cartilage template (endochondral), which for example naturally occurs in the growth plate.
