Join us at the Symposium on Biomaterial Science in Leipzig


Dresden, 27.01.2020

Tagung/Symposium am 20.03.2020 – 21.03.2020

Veranstaltungsort: Universität Leipzig, Paulinum

The CRC/Transregio 67 is organizing the 3rd International Symposium „Frontiers in Biomaterial Science“ with high-ranking international guest speakers at the Leipzig University from 20 to 21 March 2020. Prof. Lorenz Hofbauer and Dr. Juliane Salbach-Hirsch will present highlights of their research on sulfated glycosaminoglycans and bone regeneration.

Due to demographic developments, poorly healing wounds and broken bones are increasing significantly and represent a considerable socio-medical challenge. There is therefore a great need for new functional biomaterials to support the healing processes in bones and skin.

The Transregio 67 – an interdisciplinary collaborative research project of Leipzig University and the Technische Universität Dresden with 71 participating scientists – meets this challenge. We want to use the ability of the extracellular matrix, i.e. the complex environment of the body cells in all tissues, to stimulate the body’s own ability to regenerate. This approach has already made it possible to produce innovative biomaterials that can improve delayed wound healing in various model organisms.

TRR67 researchers now want to discuss these results with 19 internationally renowned experts. The two-day international symposium will focus on how scientists can learn from the processes of natural tissue development and healing for the development of healing supporting biomaterials.

Registration and poster submission are now open:
