BONEBANK – Biobank and Innovation Platform for Stem Cells in Bone Regeneration: Meet Thomas Frahm at ScanBalt Forum
The innovative approach of the project BONEBANK is to collect and isolate mesenchymal stem cells by new technologies during routine surgeries and to store them in a cross-border biobank. The project partner Life Science Nord will, amongst other activities, develop a business model for these stem cells with high market potential, focussing on industrial and public research and, as a long-term goal, on orthopaedic therapy
