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.

The aim is to create a bone scaffold that provides sufficient mechanical strength to be implanted in load-bearing bone defect sites with a gene-matrix system, achieving a localized transient expression of growth factors leading to a functional tissue formation as replacement for autologous grafts.
