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.
On October 15th, Stefano Geuna and other BIOHYBRID researchers from UNITO presented the main results from the BIOHYBRID project to the general public during an "open doors" day at the Neuroscience Institute Cavalieri Ottolenghi (NICO). The event raised much interest, especially in younger people who were particularly attracted by the biotechnological aspects underlying the success of the BIOHYBRID approach to neural repair. The event was also covered by local press and was a good occasion also for the young researchers to illustrate the impact of their studies. [More...]

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
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.
