Symposium Invitation: Medical research in Austrian companies


The AUVA research center knows the needs of trauma patients first hand and is always aiming to improve current treatments. By working together with partners in industry, the AUVA can provide a swift transition of new insights into the clinics.

On November 8th, the LBI Trauma is hosting a symposium on “Research and Industry” (“Forschung und Unternehmen – Gemeinsam für das Wohl von Unfallpatienten“) with subsequent networking buffet. In course of the event successful cooperations of the AUVA, the LBI Trauma and the economy are presented. Austrian companies, many of them associate members of the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration, offer insights into exciting projects in the field of regenerative medicine.

Building strong nerves at the TERMIS world congress


When an injured peripheral nerve is treated by transplantation of a replacement nerve, the choice of transplant and the application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) can improve and accelerate the nerve’s regeneration. LBI scientist David Hercher is presenting the findings of his scientific work at the TERMIS world congress currently taking place in Kyoto, Japan.

Crucial ligament research presented at the TERMIS world congress


Whether it might be from a skiing accident in winter or a football accident in summer, everybody has heard of someone who has injured their cruciate ligament. How these injuries are best treated to enable a quick return to a normal lifestyle is currently in the spotlight at the TERMIS world congress, taking place September 4th-7th in Kyoto, Japan.

LBG Meeting for Health Sciences – abstract deadline is fast approaching!


The LBG Meeting for Health Sciences, hosted by the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft, will take place on November 29th - 30th in Vienna. The event especially targets young researchers, offering a platform to present their work. Beside keynote lectures held by international experts there will be room for presentations in scientific sessions on:

Excellence in Vienna – the LBI Trauma co-organizes international Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases


Neurons, signal transduction, muscle cells – all’s well when these three components form a functional unit. Neuromuscular diseases are therefore the focus of numerous international scientists who are brought to Vienna by the LBI for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology: from 6. to 10. July 2018 the LBI together with the Austrian Society for Neurology acts as local organizer for the 15. International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases. After Nice (2014) and Toronto (2016) Vienna joins the line of congress locations where in the coming days leading scientists will meet for this important biannual event.

On the top of science - Interreg-TERMIS Winterschool 2018


If a great opportunity presents itself, why wait another year? The otherwise biannual TERMIS Winterschool returned in 2018 as a joint event with Interreg, putting mechanobiology in the spotlight. From January 14th to 17th an international group of scientists and students met in Radstadt, Austria, to discuss this innovative field. Focusing on in vitro and in vivo preclinical models the presenters shared experiences all the way from cell sources to specific applications. The last day offered insights in imaging methods.

Invitation to the 1st INTERREG - 6th TERMIS Winterschool 2018 - Extended Deadline!


The 1st INTERREG - 6th TERMIS Winterschool 2018 will take place in Radstadt, Salzburg, Austria from January 14th-17th, 2018 under the headline "Mechanobiology in Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration - In Vitro/In Vivo Preclinical Models and Imaging".

This is a great opportunity for students to get first-hand experience in performing preclinical (in vitro and in vivo) models as well as in vivo imaging. They are also invited to present posters on the workshop’s topic.
Networking will be encouraged with team activities in a beautiful environment and ski slopes just 100 m from the meeting venue.

50 years of heart transplantation – Talk in Schladming


To mark the anniversary of the first successful transplantation of the human heart Dr. Alber Kröpfl will hold the talk 50 Jahre Herztransplantation – Wie es dazu kam (50 years of heart transplantation – How this came about), in which course he will tell about the revolutionary event in South Africa as well as the groundbreaking medical developments leading up to it. The talk will take place on December 4th, 2017 at the Congress Schladming.

LBI Trauma at Europe’s biggest conference on intensive care medicine

LIVES 2017, the 30th conference of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), took place at the Austria Center Vienna – a home match for the LBI Trauma, which was represented by numerous contributions. Marcin Osuchowski, co-organizer of the recent Wiggers-Bernard conference, presented the meeting’s most important findings. Giacomo Iapichino and Johannes Zipperle (picture) from the group of Herbert Schöchl presented their newest results on the field of trauma-induced coagulation disorders.
