3rd International Symposium of the Transregio 67 "Frontiers in Biomaterial Science"

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. About 150 participants are expected.

„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,“ said TRR 67 spokesperson Prof. Dr. Jan C. Simon.

TRR67 researchers now want to discuss these results with 19 internationally renowned experts from the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Germany and other countries in Leipzig. 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. In keynote speeches the scientists will present their own research and discuss new methods, technologies and research strategies in the development of innovative biomaterials in implantation and transplantation medicine. The first day of the event will focus on innovative biomaterials, bone regeneration and wound healing. On the second day, the event will conclude with the topics Interleukin-17 and a session on the important findings from the research network.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
