The retreat of the DFG funded Collaborative Research Centre (CRC /SBF 1270) – Electrically Active Implants (ELAINE) took place on 18-20 September 2019 in Hasenwinkel, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Thomas Distler (PhD student) and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini attended the meeting and presented the latest results of the project “B01 – Electrically conductive and piezoactive materials for multifunctional implants for bone and cartilage regeneration”, which is being carried out in the framework of ELAINE in collaboration with Christian Polley (PhD student) and Prof. Hermann Seitz , Chair of Mikrofluidics, University of Rostock (pictured). ELAINE (spokesperson: Prof. Ursula van Rienen, University of Rostock) is developing a new family of electrically active implants for the regeneration of bone and cartilage, and for deep brain stimulation to treat movement disorders.
