The Julius Wolff Institute, which is predominantly funded by third parties, has approximately 90 staff members. They work in highly specialized fields of research. With four professorships and seven working groups, young scientists have high responsibility for their project, but also for employees, research and publications.

Georg Bergmann and Hendrik Schmidt, both Professors for Musculoskeletal Biomechanics are studying biomechanics and function of the musculoskeletal system during regeneration and after total joint replacement. They are also involved in loading, movement and spinal biomechanics.

Georg Duda holds the Chair of Musculoskeletal Regeneration and does research in basic bone, biological and mechanical aspects of bone healing as well as  cellular processes in regeneration.

The group Regeneration and Reconstruction from Professor Britt Wildemann focuses on musculoskeletal disorders and the development of new treatment options. The two main clinical topics are tendinopathy and impaired bone healing complemented with the development and analysis of new healing stimulating methods.  

In the Research Association Overload-PrevOp we aim to explore the early start of the mechanically induced osteoarthritis and how to selectively modulate this process, in order to ultimately be able to offer preventive strategies.
