Tendon and Bone Regeneration

Bones represent the supporting structure of the body, whereas the tendons allow our movement by transferring forces from the muscle to the bone. About 20% of all medical consultations are in the musculoskeletal area, of which about 30% are associated with tendon injuries. In addition to bone regeneration, the aim of our research group is to better understand tendon regeneration and thus to develop improved therapies for patients in the future.
