Research description

Longitudinal bone growth takes place in the growth plate which is a layer of cartilage in each end of most bones in the body. Lars Sävendahl and his team have developed new research models and have thereby managed to show how growth regulation takes place at the cellular level. The results have led to the forthcoming introduction of new treatment principles of different growth disorders. Please refer to the links below for more detailed description of individual research projects run by members of Lars Sävendahl´s team.
