Short description (intelligible to all):

The purpose of the ‘MoJo 3D – Modular composite Joint 3D’ project is
to develop a completely innovative technology that will make it possible
to restore a functional joint surface in patients suffering from
osteoarthritis or with cartilage damaged by trauma. The objective is to
generate a highly resilient yet frictionless joint surface based on a
modular concept personalised for the patient undergoing treatment. This
interdisciplinary project brings together the fields of materials
science, cellular biology, stem cell research, tissue engineering,
biomechanics and the clinical fields of orthopaedics, trauma surgery and
rheumatology. The intention is to create a material with a modular
structure that is adapted to the biological and biomechanical
requirements of the human joint. In order to devise the completely new
construction and application concepts required for this form of
regenerative treatment, the project combines the existing expertise at
