  • We need your help again !

    Dear Collegues !
    Dear Friends of our Biomechanics Laboratory !

    We need your help again !
    The Biomechanics Laboratory of the Medical Faculty of the Free University of
    Berlin (Benjamin Franklin School of Medicine) has done pioneering work on in-
    vivo load measurements of orthopaedic implants. You probably know our
    research work from publications, meetings, our CD-ROM "HIP98" or our web

    The continuation of our work is in danger !!

    Berlin's SPD (German Social Democrats) and PDS (German Socialist Party)
    government now wants to close the Free University's Faculty of Medicine !
    For more information see:

    You can support the massive protest of the scientific community in Berlin
    and Germany by writing a short protest letter of three or four sentences,
    emphasizing the scientific work of our Biomechanics Lab. or more generally
    that of the Faculty of Medicine of the Free University of Berlin. We (as many
    others) will collect these letters and forward them to the government and
    parliament members. This is much more effective than sending emails, which
    can be deleted by a mouse click.

    Please address the letter with the official letterhead of your institution to:

    " Klaus Wowereit and SPD members of parliament and
    Gregor Gysi and PDS members of parliament "

    and attach it to an email to (subject: "Support")

    Thank you for your support !
