Event description

Description

Fracture healing and bone remodeling are complex processes involving different cell types and matrix proteins that go hand in hand to restore and strengthen the bone tissue. Research on the underlying mechanism is mainly performed in animal models. However, supporting valuable and human-based in vitro models are desperately needed in order to facilitate the translation of results to the human patient and to reduce the stress/strain for the animals following the long-term goal to provide valid alternative methods to replace animal experiments. Therefore, we need to work intensively together with clinicians and basic researchers to optimize the current model strategy and to join forces towards a common goal.

During this two-days workshop, we aim to run on day one a seminar focusing on the current knowledge about fracture healing and bone remodeling in human patients, new therapeutic and preclinical strategies as well as in vitro model approaches and useful techniques and methods. The Network Dinner will provide the opportunity to exchange ideas and to discuss with the experts. On the second day, we will be offering a Hands-on-Workshop on our running model systems including scaffold-free bone-like constructs and in vitro fracture hematomas.

Agenda and Practical Information are available here.
