Projekte

Wings for Life

Extracorporeal shockwave treatment of spinal cord injury.

Running since 2017.

In course of our most recent Wings for Life project we examine the effect of low-energy extracorporeal shockwave treatment on the functional, morphological and molecular level in sub-acute and chronic phases of traumatic spinal cord injury.

HOBBIT

A highly porous bioinert bone implant.

Running since 2017.

In course of the project HOBBIT, funded by the Vienna Business Agency Co-Create 2017, we are investigating the bone healing potential of a minimal voluminous, highly stable load-bearing scaffold combined with a gene activated matrix.

Signaling Implant

Implants signal to bone for bone growth and attachment.

Running since 2015.

In course of the project Signaling Implant, funded by M-era.net, we aim to design new multifunctional bone implants with specific chemistry, topography and electrical potential features to stimulate bone growth. Active sites for bone attachment allow faster bone bonding and a stronger level of attachment. 

RejuvenateBone

Enhancing the regeneration of bone defects in elderly: Rejuvenation of bone microenvironment.

Running since 2014.

In course of the project RejuvenateBone, funded by the Marie Curie Individual Fellowship, we are using human induced pluripotent stem cells as a source of signaling factors and extracellular matrix to enhance the function of endogenous bone and vascular cells and to develop off-the-shelf bone tissue substitutes for bone defect healing.
