Welcome at the Julius Wolff Institute

The Julius Wolff Institute is within the university structure of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin assigned to the CharitéCentrum 9.

As a research institute we run applications and basic research in the fields of orthopedics and trauma surgery. Our main research field is the regeneration and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system as well as the improvement of joint replacement.

Our institute brings together national and international scientists from different areas of musculoskeletal research and allows by scientific and personal links with research institutions the scientific exchange of international informations and experiences.

The institute is headed by Prof. Dr. Georg Duda and his deputy, Prof. Dr. Georg Bergmann.

Julius-Wolff-Institut organizes an International Symposium on Bone Regeneration (ISBR)

At the International Symposium on Bone Regeneration (ISBR) we will bring together a wide range of scientists who are specialist in their own fields but who want to understand the complexity of bone regeneration.
We want to explore the relationships and interdependence between immune reactions, cell-matrix interactions and the role of progenitor and stem cells in bone healing.

The symposium offers:
- A panel discussion on the current bone regeneration treatments and the economic impact of non-unions.
- Interactive workshops hosted by two keynote speakers, each from a different field, to discuss the interdependence of immune and progenitor cells and their interaction with the matrix during regeneration.
- Opportunities to present your own work (oral and poster presentations)
- Awards for the three best posters

Research Unit "Regeneration in Aged Individuals"

[Translate to Englisch:]

Unter der Projektleitung von Prof. Georg Duda hat die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft e.V. den Antrag einer Forschergruppe mit dem Arbeitstitel "Regeneration in Aged Individuals: Using bone healing as a model system to characterize regeneration under compromised conditions" für eine Laufzeit von drei Jahren bewilligt.

Die Forschergruppe bezeichnet sich dabei als ein enges Arbeitsbündnis mehrerer Wissenschaftler, die gemeinsam eine Forschungsaufgabe bearbeiten. Neben dem Julius Wolff Institut sind innerhalb der CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin auch die Institute der Medizinischen Genetik und Humangenetik sowie der Medizinischen Immunologie und das Centrum für Muskuloskeletale Chirurgie und das Berlin-Brandenburger Centrum für Regenerative Therapien beteiligt. Weitere Einrichtungen sind das Institut für Biochemie der Freien Universität Berlin und das Deutsches Rheuma-Forschungszentrum Berlin.  Lesen Sie mehr
