This week, Technische Universität Dresden and the CRTD Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden welcomed His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, and the British Ambassador Sir Sebastian Wood. The Duke, as Chancellor of the University of Surrey, wanted to familiarise himself with the strategic partnership transCampus between London’s and Dresden’s researchers. In the foyer of the CRTD, Prince Edward and Sir Sebastian Wood were cordially welcomed by Prof Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Rector of TU Dresden, Prof Gerhard Rödel, Vice-Rector for Research, and Uwe Gaul, State Secretary of the Saxon State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts. At various exhibition stands, the Duke of Kent gained insights into the development of regenerative therapies, into models of neurodegenerative processes in the eye, into clinical diabetes research and into materials research at the Dresden Centre for Computational Materials Science (DCMS). He also talked to our IRTG students Margrit Kamel and Carolin Heller about the bilateral projects between TU Dresden and King’s College London on novel diabetes therapies.
