The research focuses of the Karl Donath Laboratory are:

  • Examinations on how the bone supply for an implant setting can be improved through the optimisation of augmentation materials.  
  • Improvement of the integration and durable resilience of dental implants in the jaw bone by improving implant forms and implant surfaces.
  • Increase of bone regeneration and the so-called ossointegration by testing added growth factors and cells cultivated in cell cultures. 
  • Examination of the growth and development of children’s skulls using high definition computer tomography (µCT).
  • Forensic osteology and anthropology.
  • Histological and micro-computer-tomographic examinations of the changes to teeth and bones due to genetic mutations.
