Bone Lab Dresden
Maintaining lifelong bone health remains a challenge. Therefore, our team works on several research projects linking bone research with diabetes, hematology, immunology, endocrinology, oncology, and materials science. Through our research, we expect to translate bone discoveries into more effective therapies for patients.

Aphrodite on Tour – Art for Cancer Research
A life-sized sculpture by local artist Thomas Reichstein is currently touring the campus of the Dresden University Medical Center and will be displayed at the Bone Lab Dresden for the next two weeks. Aphrodite is an ambassador of the fund-raiser for the new building of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) and donations made for the cause will be employed to the construction of the ONCO-INNOVATION-LAB, a state-of-the-art laboratory combining informatics and medicine to develop new strategies and technologies for cancer research and treatment. Every second person in Germany has a risk of being diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and 500.000 cases of cancer are newly diagnosed every year, making the diseases one of the most serious health issues of our time. Therefore, action is needed to strengthen cancer research in Germany in order to develop more efficient diagnostic tools and therapies to change the outcome for cancer patients and ultimately improve their life. We at Bone Lab Dresden are happy to support this initiative and we encourage you to join our effort.
Schenken macht glücklich – wir packen mit!
Children are the future of our world! What comes naturally to most of our children is a rare stroke of luck for many children in other countries: a present for Christmas. Small as it may be, it puts a smile on the children’s face. For many children it is a great sign of hope, solidarity and charity – and this sign shines not only at Christmas, but also throughout the year. Supporting the action “Kinder helfen Kindern by ADRA Deutschland e.v.” together with our children is a real pleasure – especially when we read, what causes a little Christmas gift in the lives of individual children and their families.
Baylor College Scientist Presents Update on Osteogenesis Imperfecta
Dr. med. Ingo Grafe, a German clinician scientist currently working with the group of Brendan Lee at the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, will give a talk on osteogenesis imperfecta on 3rd December at 3 pm in the lecture hall at house 19 (DINZ) in a joint symposium of the Center for Healthy Aging (UCGA) and the Center for Rare Diseases (UCSE) at UKD. He will give new insights into the therapy of the disease and will present novel therapeutic targets for its treatment both in adults and children. The research group of Prof. Brendan Lee is one of the most prestigious and productive genetic bone groups in the US and Dr. Grafe is looking forward to sharing his expertise with both clinicians and scientists here in Dresden.
All physicians, scientists, and students are welcome.
