Thus, translating unmet medical need into relevant basic science questions, as well as finding clinical application for technological innovations. We’re building effective group dynamics in this multi-disciplinary field and are striving to put The Netherlands center stage in the international regenerative medicine arena. Currently, we are focusing on arthoscopic delivery of cartilage repair, in the first-in-man clinical trial, IMPACT; advanced imaging and diagnostics, on the rapid diagnosis of joint homeostasis, important for (re)development processes; and on the modulation of joint and disc environment for repair and to slow degeneration.
