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. The JWI is located in Cranach House, named after Lucas Cranach the Elder who created the masterpiece the Fountain of Youth, an ambitious vision of regeneration, which is often symbolically connected with regenerative medicine.
