Angiogenesis and Immunomechanics
Healing begins with the self-organisation of cells in the wound to reestablish structured tissue and restore the mechanical stability and intrinsic pretension of the injured matrix lost through the injury. Our aim is to decipher this independent organisation of fibroblasts, vascular precursors, immune cells and mechanical instability in the complex environment of the tissue. A better understanding of this interplay forms the basis for novel therapeutic approaches in musculoskeletal regeneration.

International bridges of cutting-edge research
At the Julius Wolff Institute, we work closely with many national and international scholars in the most diverse fields of musculoskeletal research. These scientific and personal connections have resulted in three bridges of top-level research with Harvard University, ETH Zurich and Oxfort University.
