The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC significantly expands its research and development activities in Würzburg in the areas of health, medical products and cell-based regenerative therapies. The Translational Center "Regenerative Therapies for Oncology and Musculoskeletal Diseases", hitherto a branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart, became part of the Fraunhofer ISC on 1 August 2017. The Center is headed by Professor Heike Walles and was established at the Würzburg University Hospital. Along with the change of parent institute came a change of name: The former abbreviation “TZKME“ will be “TLZ-RT“ instead (for Translational Center Regenerative Therapies). Through the integration of the Translational Center, the Fraunhofer ISC in Würzburg expands by 47 members of staff.
