New Axon Quantification App launched – Webinar Sept 13-16


Counting axons on histological sections can be a laborious task, yet it is essential to quantify the success of neuroregeneration. With about 300.000 cases of peripheral nerve injury in Europe, the quest for effective surgical and therapeutic options is one of the top priorities in medical research. The peripheral nervous system has been shown to have a remarkable potential to regenerate, but might need assistance, for example in the form of a biomaterial bridging the defect, which can then be reinnervated by new axons.

Successful ASEV User Day on Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis


In the best spirit of the Austrian Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ASEV), who is dedicated to spreading information as well as evaluating and establishing methods in the field of extracellular vesicles, an educational seminar has recently been held at the LBI Trauma. Organized by Wolfgang Holnthoner, the ASEV User Day on February 20 was all about Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA). The method enables the determination of a size distribution profile of particles with a diameter of 10-1000 nanometers in liquid suspension.

Attracting the spirit of research - The INTERREG-TERMIS Winterschool 2020


Twelve years have passed since the LBI Trauma first hosted the Winterschool. A small group of scientists and students met in Radstadt (Salzburg) to discuss the most innovative research in the field of tissue regeneration. By now the Winterschool has become an internationally acclaimed event, which presented itself for the third time as a Joint Meeting with Interreg from January 12 to 15, 2020. Therefore, numerous lectures featured a focus on mechanobiology.

ASEV User Day on Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis


On February 20, 2020, the LBI Trauma will host an ASEV User Day on Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA). The event is part of a series of workshops organized by the Austrian Society for Extracellular Vesicles. It will focus on the exchange of experiences of ASEV Particle Metrix NTA users, discussion of the current situation and new developments and feature a demo of QUATT NTA by Particle Metrix. Anyone working with NTA or extracellular vesicles in general, or otherwise interested in the topic is invited to take part. The event is free of charge. Registration is required until January 15th via mail to .
