The tasks of the PhD student in this project will include comprehensive molecular evaluation of the clinical performance of the skin substitutes, i.e. biochemical, structural and molecular-biological evaluation. Emphasis will be on microarray analysis, including bioinformatics. New standards for the evaluation of skin substitutes will be set based on high density gene expression microarrays and gene ontology analysis. These data will be combined with all other data obtained in the project by other partners in order to obtain a comprehensive molecular evaluation of the clinical performance of the skin substitutes applied.
The European partners in the project will at least meet yearly to discuss the progress of the project.
