VHS meets LBI Trauma: Start of the lecture series at Wiener Volkshochschulen

Under the motto “Research, Rescue, Regenerate”, young scientists from LBI Trauma present at Wiener Volkshochschulen to give insights into their exciting research on tissue engineering and regeneration.

Conny Schneider kicked things off on March 17th at Planetarium Vienna. In “Everything goes smoothly – Laser and light for cartilage regeneration” she told the enthusiastic audience what makes articular cartilage so special and which strategies are used in the event of cartilage injuries. The hour-long lecture was followed by a lively discussion.

More lectures will follow in the coming weeks:

Biophysical therapies – Healing through light and shock waves

Magdalena Metzger, March 30, 6:30 p.m., VHS Penzing

Helping the body to help itself – that is the motto of biophysical therapies. With pulsating light and shock wave therapy, medicine has two effective ways to gently stimulate healing processes in bones, nerves or skin. Scientists at LBI Trauma are researching how these therapies are best applied and which cellular processes are behind the positive effects.

Cellular message in a bottle – How we can use EVs for medicine

Johannes Oesterreicher, April 18, 6 p.m., VHS Ottakring

EVs, short for extracellular vesicles, are small bubbles with great potential. They are sent out by cells, the smallest living units in our body, and carry messages in the form of proteins or transcripts of the genetic code. EVs offer scientists unprecedented insights into cell communication. The small particles are particularly interesting because of their potential for the early detection of diseases and their use as cell-free therapeutic agents.
