RevoBITs: Innovative Biofabrication Start-up Founded by SFB/TRR 225 Doctoral Students

By 19. May 2023May 22nd, 2023News

RevoBITs, a promising German biofabrication pre-seed start-up based at FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, has emerged as a result of the remarkable entrepreneurial efforts of SFB/TRR 225 doctoral students, including Ruben Gerrit Scheuring, who pursued his Ph.D. at the Department for Functional Materials in Medicine and Dentistry University of Würzburg under the supervision of Prof. Jürgen Groll, and Stefan Schrüfer, who conducted his research at the FAU at the Chair of Materials Science (Polymer Materials) under the guidance of Prof. Dirk W. Schubert.

Together with the co-founders of RevoBITs, Janik Altenhöfer and Alexander Björk, their outstanding innovation and unwavering dedication have earned them recognition in the second phase of the Businessplan Wettbewerb Nordbayern (Business Plan Competition Northern Bavaria) . As SFB/TRR 225, we take great pride in the achievements of our doctoral students, who have infused their scientific expertise and unwavering passion for biofabrication into the establishment of this pre-seed start-up.

RevoBITs aims to enhance the efficiency of bioprinters and set new standards in tissue printing. As SFB/TRR 225, we are thrilled by their vision to make groundbreaking advancements in multi-material printing and standardize the production of meaningful human tissue models for medical research and the pharmaceutical industry.

At SFB/TRR 225, we support and foster such entrepreneurial initiatives by our doctoral students, which contribute to translating the outcomes of our research into practice. The recognition of RevoBITs in the Business Plan Competition Nordbayern demonstrates that our young researchers are capable of successfully implementing their ideas and innovations into a start-up venture.

We congratulate Ruben Gerrit Scheuring (Projekt B04) and Stefan Schrüfer (Projekt A07) on their success and take pride in their significant contribution to biofabrication and tissue printing research as part of the SFB/TRR 225 team. Their start-up, RevoBITs, represents progress and the future of tissue printing, and we will continue to support their business growth and scientific achievements.

As SFB/TRR 225, we are proud that our doctoral students have infused their passion and expertise into the establishment of RevoBITs. This serves as another example of successful knowledge transfer to the industry, highlighting the relevance of our work for society.
