Cornea Bank Greifswald
The Cornea Bank Greifswald is part of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Ophthalmology in the University Medicine. It looks back on a long tradition: The eye bank was founded at the beginning of 1993 and was thus the first cornea bank in the new federal states. Since 2007, the Cornea Bank Greifswald has had a cooperation agreement with the DGFG: All donated corneas are transferred to transplanting hospitals and doctors via the DGFG network. The Cornea Bank Greifswald prepares the donated tissue. Senior physician Dr. Dorothea Hübner, ward physician at the eye clinic, has been the responsible person since 2001. Sebastian Kruschke and Nadine Zehm ensure that the tissue donations can finally be sent to the surgeons. They are responsible for the corneal preparation and the administration of the cornea bank.
Responsible person according to §20c: Dr. med Dorothea Hübner
