Bone Lab participates in the Charity “Kinder helfen Kinder” and sends Christmas presents to underprivileged children

2019-11-18T13:31:11+00:00

Bone Lab participates in the Charity "Kinder helfen Kindern" Dresden, 18.11.2019 Not all children are fortunate enough to grow up in a prosperous country like Germany or Austria. That´s why we support "Kinder helfen Kindern by ADRA Deutschland e.v." again, which provides Christmas presents to children in Macedonia and Albania, who may never have received Christmas presents before. We hope our little gifts bring joy to the children and their families and put a smile on their face because children are the future of our world!   www.kinder-helfen-kindern.org

Bone Lab wins “ASBMR Best Translational Abstract Award”

2019-09-27T14:00:29+00:00

Bone Lab wins "ASBMR Best Translational Abstract Award" Dresden, 25.09.2019 The ASBMR Most Outstanding Abstract Award is given to the highest scoring translational abstract submitted for presentation at the ASBMR Annual Meeting. In the abstract we show that T cell-derived Dkk1 controls bone remodeling in adult mice and that it contributes to bone loss induced by estrogen deficiency. This work demonstrates that bone loss after menopause may not only be mediated via direct actions on bone cells, but also via actions on other cell types, such as T cells. Congratulations, Martina!

Two international experts providing insights into MSC epigenetics and iron metabolism

2019-09-17T15:33:31+00:00

Two international experts providing insights into MSC epigenetics and iron metabolism Dresden, 17.09.2019 The Bone Lab thanks Laura Silvestri from the Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan, Italy and Alexander Rauch from the University of Southern Denmark for their fantastic talks on iron metabolism and the control of hepcidin expression and the epigenetic control of MSC differentiation into osteoblasts and adipocytes. We learned a lot and are looking forward to further collaborations!

How does diabetes impact bone health?

2019-09-16T11:49:50+00:00

How does diabetes impact bone health? Dresden, 05.09.2019 Diabetes mellitus is a widespread metabolic disease, with negative/adverse effects on many organ systems. Diabetes also significantly affects bone health. An increased risk of bone fractures and impaired fracture healing has been observed in patients, but the mechanisms are not fully understood. In order to investigate the links between diabetes and the bone system, the EU project "FIDELIO" will run for four years starting October 2019. This European Training Network, coordinated by scientists from the Faculty of Medicine of the Technical University of Dresden, is [...]

Charity run: 470 runners set signs against cancer

2019-07-04T12:15:57+00:00

Charity run: 470 runners set signs against cancer Dresden, 03.07.2019 Charity run: 470 runners set signs against cancer Successful start: At the first charity run of the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT / UCC), around 470 runners started in the Dresden Waldpark on July 2. Alone or as a team, all participants covered a distance of more than 3,100 kilometers. About 10,000 euros in donations for cancer research were made. Thanks to Martina for her active support!

Wir waren bei der Rewe Team Challenge dabei – dem Knochen zuliebe!

2019-06-04T11:16:48+00:00

Wir waren bei der Rewe Team Challenge dabei - dem Knochen zuliebe! Dresden, 31.05.2019 Denn Laufen stärkt die Knochen Knochen können nur stark werden und stark bleiben, wenn sie regelmäßig kräftig belastet werden. Schon dreimal 15 Laufminuten pro Woche sorgen dafür, dass das Risiko, Osteoporose zu bekommen, um bis zu 40 Prozent sinkt. Mit der Belastung steigt die Knochendichte, dies schützt vor Frakturen und Osteoporose. Knochenverlust und dessen Behandlung ist nur eines der vielen Themen, mit denen sich das Bone Lab beschäftigt. Ulrike Baschant läuft seit vielen Jahren und trainiert regelmäßig. „Laufen gehört [...]

Elena Tsourdi is awarded the Clinical Fellowship 2019

2019-06-04T10:44:29+00:00

Elena Tsourdi is awarded the Clinical Fellowship 2019 Dresden, 28.05.2019 Elena Tsourdi is ECTS Clinical Fellowship Awardee 2019 having been granted 10.000€ for clinical research in the field of bone disease. With the project ‘The effect of antiresorptive and osteoanabolic drugs on the expression of bone-specific microRNAs in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis’ she and her collaborators plan to test whether bone-specific miRNAs are differently regulated by osteoporosis therapeutics. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate various cell functions by inhibiting target gene expression, and bone-specific miRNAs can be potential diagnostic tools in postmenopausal osteoporosis. The main goal [...]

Out of the shell and step into life

2019-02-21T13:38:53+00:00

Just in time for the "Tag der Seltenen Erkrankungen" our researchers discover protein for more mobility Dresden, 21.02.2019 Only a few know the rare bone disease FOP: as in a nightmare, muscles and connective tissue are transformed into bone - and those affected are literally walled up alive. As a result, these patients become prisoners of their own body. Scientists of the Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus at the TU Dresden have now discovered a protein that inhibits excessive bone formation in FOP. In the future, this could be a therapeutic approach. [...]
