3R Days 2021: Birgit Lohberger - Mechanical Stimulation as a tool in osteoarthritis research
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis which damages joint cartilage and surrounding
tissue and affects millions of people worldwide. A healthy and active lifestyle is key to preventing this disease or, if already present, to slowing down the progression of symptoms.
PD Mag. Dr. Birgit Lohberger, who works at the Department of Orthopedics and Trauma at the Medical University of Graz, will talk about studying the mechanical stimulation of cartilage cells in vitro to learn more about the key factors of OA. We are looking forward to it!

Dr. Lohberger`s talk is scheduled for Scientific Day 1 on Nov. 11, 2021.
