Julius Wolff Institute

Basic and applied research in orthopaedics and trauma surgery

Following in the tradition of Julius Wolff, we explore the interplay between mechanics and biology in bone and muscle. Motivated by clinical necessities, we concentrate on basic and applied research in orthopedics and trauma surgery.

Our Focus

Understand - the interaction between movement and loading within joint replacements and during fracture healing

Enable - musculoskeletal mobility

Initiate - regeneration in challenging healing situations, such as delayed bone healing, bone defect healing, muscle trauma, ligament injury and arthrosis.

JWI Network

Inspiration - Our research teams have the opportunity to develop their ideas into joint reserach projects with the support of modern team coaching and seed funding provided by the ECRT.

Education - All our PhD Students and Postdocs are members of the BSRT Graduate School and supported by the mentoring infrastructure.

Translation - We develop innovative therapies by applying biomechanical, mechano-biological and osteo-immunological concepts. Translational approaches are supported by infrastructures of the BCRT.

Regeneration - Essential for our clinically motivated research is the close interaction with our partner clinics CMSC with whom we have built a focus on "movement research".
