Raine Lecture : "The tympanic membrane: Structure, damage and regeneration" Other events...
Magnus von Unge is Professor and Senior Ear Surgeon at Akershus University Hospital, University of Oslo, Norway. He is member of the Swedish Surgical Society, Association for Research in Otolaryngology and Politzer Society, and has served on the editorial board of ACTA Otolaryngologica.

Professor von Unge presented his scientific thesis on the mechanical properties of the tympanic membrane at the Karolinska Institute and continues research on changes in the tympanic membrane structure and function in inflammatory middle ear disease. Some of these studies were done in collaboration with the biomedical physics group at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, that resulted inter alia in the first paper in English on multipotent and pluripotent stem cell applications for the treatment of middle ear defects. His research focuses on the regenerative properties of the human tympanic membrane for the purpose of tissue engineering and activation of repair processes, as well as other otological issues, such as changes to the chorda tympani in middle ear disease and after middle ear surgery, and the long-term effects of different types of grommets.
