Raymund E Horch MD is Professor for Plastic and Hand Surgery Chairman of the Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery and Director of the Laboratory for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at the FriedrichAlexanderUniversity of ErlangenNürnberg Germany
Besides his clinical research projects Prof Horch was among the pioneers of the emerging field of tissue engineering since the very beginning He has contributed to the further development of cultured keratinocyte transplantation by investigating single cell suspensions in fibrin sealant and has combined the three dimensional vascularisation of tissue eingineered matrices by means of arteriovenous microsurgical loops with material research to various types of tissues This approach can further open a new field of research utilizing tissue engineering techniques for angiogenesis and cancer research
He has authored or coauthored more than 300 peer reviewed papers and book chapters on various topics in reconstructive surgery mainly microsurgical techniques including transplantation breast reconstruction aesthetic surgery grafting techniques and tissue engineering approaches as well as novel treatment modalities for severe wounds and burns He has edited several books and was frequently awarded for clinical and experimental scientific achievements
