    ..Our findings demonstrate that a pure biomaterial approach has the potential to recapitulate a developmental bone growth process for bone healing. This might motivate future strategies for biomaterial-based tissue regeneration. ..
  2. Petersen A, Joly P, Bergmann C, Korus G, Duda G. The impact of substrate stiffness and mechanical loading on fibroblast-induced scaffold remodeling. Tissue Eng Part A. 2012;18:1804-17 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, it is concluded that the mechanical environment of the cell after remodeling is depending on mechanical loading rather than on initial scaffold stiffness. ..
  3. Kopf J, Petersen A, Duda G, Knaus P. BMP2 and mechanical loading cooperatively regulate immediate early signalling events in the BMP pathway. BMC Biol. 2012;10:37 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, the crosstalk of both pathways over longer time periods might occur on several signalling levels. ..
