An important issue in tissue engineering is the provision of
vasculature and a solution might be the co-transplantation of the cells
of the target tissue together with endothelial cells.
In order to quantify formation of coherent vascular networks, techniques for three-dimensional assessment of capillary network formations were established. Algorithms were developed for 3D measurement of various characteristic quantities of capillary-like network fomrmation and vascular maturation from CLSM data (co-work with Institute for Informatics and IZBI, University of Leipzig).
