Adrian Weghofer

PhD Candidate

Adrian studied Medical Engineering at the Universities of Stuttgart/Tübingen (M.Sc.) and joined the µOrganoLab in 2022 as a Master´s student. His project focused on the establishment of an endocervical tissue model on-chip including the integration of electrospun scaffolds and the optimization of microfluidic chip fabrication. Furthermore, he conducted a literature-based research project on “Recreating hormone dynamics in OoC systems”. His fascination and interest in biomimetic micro-physiological systems led him to start his Ph.D., focusing on the integration of micro-hollow-membrane-fibers into microfluidic chips to enable a vasculature-like perfusion.

In his free time, he enjoys playing competitive volleyball and beach volleyball with his teammates at TSG Tübingen, working out, reading, and spending time with his friends and big family.
