About Augustinus Bader

Professor Augustinus Bader is a world-leader in stem cell technology and tissue engineering and a doctor of regenerative medicine. He has published over 180 peer-reviewed papers and is currently the director of Cell Techniques and Applied Stem Cell Biology at The University of Leipzig. The German-born Professor has spent over 30 years developing technologies that activate and harness the human body's capacity to heal, and the reawakening of cells that become dormant due to aging or trauma. In 2008, Professor Bader developed a ground-breaking Wound Gel that promotes the natural repair of third-degree burns without surgery or skin grafts. The gel functions by carrying a set of healing signals to the site of an injury, which, in turn, catalyzes a response from damaged skin cells and facilitates an expedited, automated restoration process.
