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.

Plastic Embeded Histology
In this laboratory, plastic preparations can be made from non-decalcified hard tissue. Beside slices, grindings with or without metal implants can be prepared. By different histological stainings, several tissue types including mineralized tissue can be highlighted.
The equipment of the immunohistological laboratory allows the preparation of paraffin slices from decalcified hard and soft tissue. Several staining methods allow the characterization of different tissue and cell types.
For detection of proteins by antigen-antibody reaction, the Avidin-Biotin method (peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase) is used. Beside several established antigen detection protocols, new protocols are established depending on the research Projects.
