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.
3rd International Symposium on Peripheral Nerve Regeneration
***- Registration is now open-***
The BIOHYBRID Consortium is hosting the 3rd International Symposium on Peripheral Nerve Regeneration on September 24th and 25th, 2015 in Hannover. For more details, please visit www.ispnr.eu
Website online! The European Society for the Study of Peripheral Nerve Repair and Regeneration- ESPNR was founded in May 2014.
You can now learn more about the aims and activities of the ESPNR by visiting www.espnr.eu.
BIOYHBRID consortium partners met from November 17th-19th, 2014 for the 5th General Assembly hosted by the coordinating partner MHH in Hannover, Germany. The occasion was used to gear up for the months ahead, filled with final experiments, future clinical issues, publications and the 3rd ISPNR in 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.
