In her role as administrative director of LBI Trauma, research management belongs to Veronika’s main activities – ranging from the level of the institute to the level of the project. Accordingly, she acts as an interface between the various departments of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft, organises contracts and other agreements, plans the budget and assists with the submission and accounting of projects. Furthermore, she supervises the organisation of some scientific events and takes care of process developments within and outside of LBI Trauma.
Following her diploma thesis which she wrote at the Wenner-Gren Institute in Stockholm, Veronika Hruschka completed her PhD at the Medical University of Vienna in the field of bone and joint regeneration in 2014. Her research focused on in vitro 2D cell cultures as well as 3D biocompatibility and cellular differentiation using cell lines and primary cells such as adipose-derived stromal cells. She has contributed to several projects in the field of bones and biological evaluation of biomaterials, including the EU FP7 projects, IMCOSS, Biodesign and Angioscaff. At the moment, Veronika is involved in the INKPlant projects.
