European project BONE: eliminating the need for repeat fracture surgeries

Press Release from Maastricht University / 6.7.2017

A European transnational consortium led by Maastricht University (UM) will spend the next few years developing innovative bone implants. These implants will offer an alternative to repeat surgeries, prolonged medication use and donor tissue implementation following complex bone fractures. This innovative partnership will also give the participating regions a significant economic boost. The official kick-off of the international research project BONE, which stands for Biofabrication of Orthopaedics in a New Era, will be held on Thursday 6 July in Paris, France.
