Scaffolds for in vivo cultivation


The goal is the development of joint-like structured scaffolds for in vivo cultivation. First scaffolds, based on hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) have been designed and made available for clinical studies. In pre-human testing at the University of Kiel, the in vivo behavior of 3D-printed structures, and in particular the bone formation, was examined. The vision of this project is an in vivo cultivation of a joint-like structure in the patient, which can then be used as an implantable and functional joint.
