We congratulate Lisa Kiesewetter who successfully defended her doctoral thesis entitled “Technologies for Vascularized Skin Equivalents to Study Cutaneous Wound Healing in Vitro” on 7th December 2020. Lisa carried out her doctoral project at University Hospital Würzburg, Chair for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and Fraunhofer ISC, supervised by Prof. Heike Walles and Dr. Florian Groeber-Becker, in collaboration with and supervision of Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. The examination board was composed by Prof. Heike Walles (Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg), Prof. Andreas Wierschem (CBI Department, FAU), Prof. Oliver Friedrich (Institute for Medical Biotechnology, FAU), Prof. Mathias Goeken (Department WW, FAU) and Prof. Boccaccini. Prof. Boccaccini congratulated Lisa for her achievement and highlighted the highly interdisciplinary character of her work covering several fields, including biotechnology, tissue engineering and biomaterials and the important contribution of her studies to the field of wound skin models. Several papers have already been published from the results of Lisa’s thesis (for example [1]). Many congratulations to Lisa for her “Dr.-Ing.” degree and we wish her all the best in her future career.
