David Hercher

David Hercher’s main research focus is the investigation of regenerative processes after injuries with special emphasis on the nervous system, the elucidation of modes of action of mechanical stimuli on Schwann cells and tissues as well as non-viral gene therapy and novel imaging modalities and their application in the field of regenerative medicine. His most important scientific findings are the phenotypical commitment of motor and sensory Schwann cells as well as the development of a novel contrast agent-enhanced µCT 3D histology method for application in peripheral nerve regeneration as well as novel findings of functional regeneration using automated gait analysis.
