BONEBANK Conference
20 Aug 2020
Event details

Currently, bone marrow and bone fragments containing valuable stem cells are discarded as waste during routine bone operations. The potential of these stem cells lies primarily in their use for regenerative therapies, such as the treatment of bone fractures. The BONEBANK idea is to harvest these stem cells with new instruments and methods and to store them in German-Danish biobanks. Thereby, this valuable resource can be made available for therapeutic purposes or for research into advanced therapies.

On the other side newest studies have shown that certain fractures are associated with a high rate of complications such as pseudarthrosis. This relates to e.g. proximal tibia fractures after high speed traumata with bone loss. This type of fracture therefore requires high innovative strategies for bone healing and builds the framework for the 'First in Human" study

To discuss these issues and to learn more about it we invite you to the final conference of the Interreg project BONEBANK, the German-Danish biobank and innovation platform for stem cells in the bone region, on August 20, 2020.

Scientific Round Table on Non-union and Stem Cell Therapy

Speed speeches and discussion on: 

- Harvesting bone material
- Cell quality for biobanking
- Clinical study “First in human”
- GMP compliant mesenchymal stem cell product
- Development of the BONEBANK stem cell harvester
- Development of the BONEBANK injection device
- Datacenter platform for cross-border use
- German-Danish Competence Atlas

BONEBANK is funded by Interreg Deutschland-Danmark with means from the European Regional Development Fund.

I will learn to
  • Deepen the causes of non- unions and their correct classification
  • Understand the need and indication for using stem cell therapies to treat non-unions
  • Differentiate the different stem cell types
  • Get to know about different standard therapy procedures for the treatment of patients with non-unions
  • Get to know about the latest trends in the harvesting of bone material and bone marrow for the isolation of mesenchymal stem cells
  • Get an overview of the procedure for storing mesenchymal stem cells in a biobank
