BIOHYBRID (Biohybrid templates for peripheral nerve regeneration) is a medium scale integrated project supported by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programm FP7 running from October 2011 until September 2015.
The overall aim of the BIOHYBRID consortium is the preclinical development of an innovative artificial biohybrid nerve device for the regenerative treatment of traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves.
The consortium consists of three dynamic and reputable Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) as well as seven academic partners that are recognised leaders in the disciplines of neuroanatomy, neuronal regeneration, neurosurgery and innovative biomaterial research.
The results of the multidisciplinary research will feed into the establishment of artificial biohybrid devices as stand alone alternatives to accepted standard procedures and tools. Furthermore, standardised application guidelines and evaluation parameters will be set up to enable continuous progress and evaluation of the outcome of clinical application.
