  • International Symposium on Biomechanics and Biology of BoneHealing / May 2008 / Charite, Berlin

    Dear subscribers to the Biomch-L,

    on behalf of Georg Duda and Georg Bergmann I am delighted to invite
    you to submit abstracts to the forthcoming international Symposium, to be held
    in the Charité, Humboldt and Free University of Berlin. In addition to the
    international symposium we will celebrate the foundation of

    the Julius Wolff Institut,

    which will be formed by the research laboratory of the Center for
    Musculoskeletal Surgery, lead by Georg Duda / Norbert Haas, and the
    Biomechanics Laboratory of Georg Bergmann.

    Below you will find a brief overview containing all the details on the
    location, the sessions planned and the international faculty presenting:

    We are looking forward to seeing up-to-date research results as well as having
    in-depth scientific discussion. This meeting therefore aims to define the
    current status and concepts of regeneration in the complete field of bone

            The symposium will allow highlighting the state of the art in the
    fields of bone healing research. We will focus on new developments regarding
    the molecular basis of bone regeneration, the understanding of the structural
    constrains of native and artificial tissue and the clinical implications and
    experimental models of bone regeneration. We will offer a platform for
    clinicians and researchers to share expertises and experiences on latest
    developments in this field.

            Abstracts for posters and presentations are now being accepted. The
    deadline for submission of abstracts is 15th March 2008. The best quality
    abstract submissions of no more than 300 words will be accepted for the
    sessions presented above. Please find further details, including the
    submission form on the web site at

            The best student and best regular rated abstracts will receive awards
    including a free registration to the event.

            − Regular participants          - Euro 250
            − Student participants          - Euro 150

            The foundation of the Julius Wolff Institut, Berlin, a full evening of
    entertainment taking place on Thursday evening, is included within the
    registration fee.
