FOR 2165 Symposium on Crosstalk in Bone Regeneration
The ISBR joins a wide range of scientists who are specialist in their own fields, aiming to understand the complexity of bone regeneration. At the ISBR scientists want to explore the relationships and interdependence between immune reactions, cell-matrix interactions and the role of progenitor and stem cells in bone healing.
Bone is one of the few tissues in the body that has the general capability of scar less, endogenous regeneration resulting in complete functional and structural reconstitution. Thus, bone is an ideal model system to evaluate the effect of stress factors or constraints of healing on a cellular and tissue level.. Basic knowledge about molecules of the extracellular matrix, the immune response and the function of stem and progenitor cells during regeneration has cumulated over the last decade. Nevertheless, the interconnectivity of different aspects of the healing cascade is often underestimated in research studies. A prerequisite for the successful implementation of regenerative medicine is an understanding of the complex mechanisms interacting during regeneration.
By initiating discussion and interaction between basic disciplines involved in investigating the regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues, we aim to strengthen exchange between the disciplines that are essential for initiating new concepts specifically for those patients at need for new therapies. This symposium will try to combine different angles of regeneration, offering the possibility to discuss with specialists form different regenerative fields the importance of the interdependency of different tissues and cellular systems in regeneration, thus opening the possibility to begin an interaction between immunological, stem cell based, mechanical, and metabolic aspects of regeneration.
