September 2014

Collaboration project between Morphoplant, BirdC and TU Wien has been successfully finished. A GMP-compliant production preocess for BMP-2 has been established

August 2014

Successfull recombinant production of stem cell homing factor SDF-1

May 2014

Bioactive BMP-2 and VEGF have been incorporated into electro-spun PDLLA nano-composites fleeces. These fleeces might mimic the native extracellular matrix of bone tissue, stimulating angiogenesis and osteogenesis

January 2013

Development of an fully automated etching- and dry packaging robot in collaboration with an equipment manufacturer

August 2012

First preclinical in vivo-studies on VEGF and VEGF/ BMP-2 coated bone replacement implants

June 2012

Development of a biocompatible bone glue

October 2011

Morphoplant in collaboration with Bird-C/ Vienna and Technical University Vienna receives grand for the development of a GMP-compliant production process for BMP-2/ VEGF using Bird-C's proprietary bacterial ghost technology

September 2011

BMBF funding of "BioMin" project - Functionalized mineral surface by immobilization of growth stimulating proteins

March 2010

First preclinical in vivo-studies reveal strong stimulation of bone and osteoid ongrowth for ultrahydrophilic and rhBMP-2 coated titan-plasma-sprayed surfaces

Februar 2006

AiF funding of "Boneadapt" project - Production of BMP-2 loaded osteoinductive ceramic bone replacement materials

October 2004

Preclinical in vivo-studies prooving high biological activity of Morphoplants rhBMP-2
