"BONEBANK" is intended in the future to make possible the extraction and utilization of bone marrow stem cells from fracture-related routine operations. The German-Danish BoneBank project for the establishment of a biobank for bone marrow stem cells with a total volume of 2.3 million euros will be funded from September 2015 through the Interreg Germany-Danmark funding program.
The declared goal is the extraction of bone marrow stem cells during routine operations in the German and Danish Trauma Centers Lübeck and Odense. Building on this, the establishment of a cross-border biobank for bone marrow stem cells will be advanced. "The BoneBank project paves the way for new stem cell therapies with versatile uses, e.g. in cancer therapy or bone healing. In addition, BoneBank offers an important innovation platform for new medical products and therapies in regenerative medicine. " Arndt Peter Schulz, Senior Physician at the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of the UKSH and Member of the Board of Life Science Nord e.V.
Lead partner of the consortium is the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) in Lübeck. Together with the project partners Universitätsklinikum Odense, Stryker Trauma GmbH, Soventec GmbH and Life Science Nord Management GmbH, a comprehensive concept was developed last year. The project development was supported by the Kiel company DSN Connecting Knowledge.
"With BONEBANK, the consortium is taking an innovative approach to making stem cells even more useful for research and therapy. At the same time, the project strengthens the cooperation between German and Danish companies, clinics and research institutes, "says Dr. Hinrich Habeck, Managing Director of Life Science Nord Management GmbH.
In the project, soventec will contribute concepts and implementation for the networking of the biobanks and the later connection of the donation centers and other hospitals
