The research article on enhanced regeneration of critical-size long bone defects using hypertrophic chondrocyte grafts was published in Biomaterials (IF=8). Dr. Jon Bernhard, a Whitaker International Fellow to the LBI together with his colleagues showed the feasibility and promise of differentiated hypertrophic chondrocye grafts to regenerate critical-size femoral defects.
With support of AUVA and Lorenz-Böhler Hospital, the LBI has hosted the 9th Wiggers-Bernard Conference from May 3rd until 5th. The conference was entitled: “Pre-clinical Modeling in Sepsis: exchanging opinions and forming recommendations”. Over the period of three days, we had the privilege to host the crème de la crème of international experts (30 participants from 15 different countries) in clinical and pre-clinical sepsis.
The scientific advisory board chose Roland Kocijan’s contribution to be a highlight of OSTEOLOGIE 2017. "MicroRNAs are Correlated to Bone Microstructure and Histomorphometry in Patients with Idiopathic and Postmenopausal Osteoporosis" will be presented at the congress which will take place from March 23rd to 25th in Erlangen.
The 14th Interdisciplinary Trauma Symposium took place on 13. and 14. January 2017 in Linz. Organised by the Austrian Workers' Compensation Board (AUVA), the symposium was held under the theme “greatest moments in intensive care medicine”. Various talks in the areas of sepsis, infection or coagulopathy gave an extensive and interesting outline on the biggest challenges in intensive care.
Christina Schuh and Karl Schneider each won one of four Best Abstracts Awards from the Ludwig Boltzmann Society. The award ceremony took place on 29 November 2016 and was part of the LBG Meeting for Health Sciences 2016. The meeting gives young scientists the possibility to present their research.
In the current issue (October 2016) of the renowned journal "Tissue Engineering - Part B: Reviews", an article by Mira Schaupper (Endothelial Cell Group from Dr. Wolfgang Holnthoner) was published that is a success on various levels.

Present state of Peripheral Nerve Surgery and New Ideas to Improve the Results
Prof. Hanno Millesi invites to attend this meeting in 2017. THe Symposiom will be held at the General Hospital Lecture Halls, Vienna, Austria. The idea of the meeting is as always to discuss any suggestion to improve our knowledge on peripheral nerves and peripheral nerve surgery.
Feel free to submit papers of any subject you want to be discussed.
Deadline will be January 15, 2017
The applications for the Scholarships of the doctoral program in Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine (TERM&SC) & Stem Cells and Doctoral Program in Advanced Therapies for Health (PATH) are now open for the next academic year, 2016/17.
The LBI Trauma is one of the 9 Laboratories that will host PhD students together with 3B´s - UMinho under these programs. The scholarships will be paying the students salary and travelling.
