The clinic for orthopaedic surgery, Medical School Hannover, is represented by the research unit Biohybrids, Biocompatibility, Biodegradation within NIFE (Lower Saxony Centre for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development). A new building was built at Stadtfelddamm and connects the transdisciplinary research and development of biomedical implants in Lower Saxony that is carried out at Medical School Hannover (MHH), University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation (TiHo), and the Leibniz University of Hannover (LUH) in cooperation with the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH).
The research unit Biohybrids, Biocompatibility, Biodegradation is present with two working groups:
- Graded Implants and Regenerative Strategies in the Skeletal System
- Biodegradable and Bioactive Orthopaedic Implants
