Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology
The Institutes of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft carry out high-level international research in the areas of human medicine on the one hand and humanities, social sciences and cultural sciences on the other. One of them involved in trauma related research is the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology (LBI Trauma), which was started 1980 in cooperation with AUVA (the Austrian Worker’s Compensation Board). In December 2006, the Research Cluster for Tissue Regeneration was founded by the LBI Trauma and research groups from the Medical University Vienna, the Bernhard Gottlieb University Dental Clinic and the Red Cross of Upper Austria. The objective of the Cluster is to better understand soft tissue-, cartilage-, bone- and neuro-regeneration, and thereby enhance therapy through new and improved treatment methods. Research assignments arise from treatment necessities and proven benefits to patients.
