Next round of our VHS lecture series
Under the motto “Research, Rescue, Regenerate”, young scientists present at Wiener Volkshochschulen to give insights into their exciting research at LBI Trauma and LBG SHoW. After a summer break, we are now starting the new season. The first lecture will take place on November 6th.
The lecture series is a continuation of the collaboration that started in the summer semester of 2023. Several LBI Trauma scientists have already taken interested audiences on a journey through their research fields. In the winter semester, all of our lectures will be held in the unique ambience of the Vienna Planetarium. Anyone interested can also join in from the comfort of their couch and take part in the discussion via chat.
Tickets are still available for all four events!
Making wound healing visible
Nadja Ring, November 6th
How does the state of wounding become a state of healing? To learn this, we have to look closely. Histology is a technique that allows us to visualize the body down to the smallest detail. The fine tissue sections tell us in bright colors and sometimes even with a fluorescent glow what the tissue is made of and what processes take place in it.
Forschung hautnah – What artificial skin can do
Barbara Bachmann, November 28th
Nowadays, researchers routinely grow artificial skin in the laboratory. But how exactly does it work and what is the skin then used for? Dr Barbara Bachmann explains which technologies researchers use to recreate this organ in the laboratory, what possibilities this artificial skin opens up for modern medicine and what it has to do with our cosmetic products.
Stop the bleeding – challenges and innovations in intensive care medicine
Johannes Zipperle, January 17, 2024
If a patient with serious injuries is admitted to the shock room, everything has to happen quickly. The aim is to stabilize the patient and stop bleeding. But why do some injuries never stop bleeding? Johannes Zipperle, head of blood coagulation research at LBI Trauma, explains how modern devices can save lives by measuring blood coagulation and what the venom of the chain viper has to do with it.
Chronic wounds and where to find them – wound treatment in Austria
Conny Schneider, January 31, 2024
“Time heals all wounds” is firmly anchored in our consciousness, but unfortunately not correctly. Chronic wounds, commonly referred to as “open legs,” often persist for months or even years. It doesn’t have to be that way. But the treatment is complex and success depends on the collaboration of various health professionals. The analysis by LBG SHoW shows: The Austrian healthcare system currently lacks appropriate coordination.
