Symposium of the Julius Wolff Institute

“Advanced therapies in musculoskeletal regeneration: Novel strategies and challenges for regeneration in compromised patients”

14th and 15th June 2018 in Berlin

The current year marks a special milestone in the history of the Julius Wolff Institute (JWI): It is now 10 years since the institute first began conducting musculoskeletal research in orthopedics and trauma surgery. Originating from a clinical research group of the DFG and the orthopedic lab at the Oskar-Helene-Heim, the Julius Wolff Institute started off with just a few keen researchers. Over the years, qualified professionals from around the world have joined the JWI and helped shape its various research areas. Their enthusiasm, innovative ideas and hard work have made the Julius Wolff Institute the well-established lab that it is today. While looking forward to even more groundbreaking research, we want to celebrate this special occasion with a jubilee symposium on “Advanced therapies in musculoskeletal regeneration: Novel strategies and challenges for regeneration in compromised patients”.

In musculoskeletal research, a number of emerging fields are having a great impact on translational science. For example, active shaping of inflammatory cascades to enhance regeneration now appears possible, mechano-biological cues can be employed at multiple length scales to enable regeneration, and substantial knowledge can be gained on in vivo loads and friction at metallic interfaces.

During the symposium, national and international experts will reflect on their work, including the JWI’s current Clinical Research Group. With this event, we wish to apply Julius Wolff’s principles to today’s perspectives. Our aim is to combine junior and established researchers’ ideas to come up with new creative approaches.

Join the jubilee research symposium of the Julius Wolff Institute on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th June 2018 in Berlin. Find out about the program.
