Annelie-Martina Weinberg

Assoz. Prof. Dr. Weinberg is a senior physician at the University Hospital Graz. In 2001, she was the first woman in the trauma surgery department to be awarded the habilitation. Besides that, she has made a name for herself by doing pioneering research in experimental biomechanics, molecular biology, and fracture healing in children, with a focus on absorbable implants.

Her lifetime project is the realisation of the Laura Bassi Centre BRIC (Bioresorbable Implants for Children) at the Medical University of Graz: "I had been doing research on absorbable implants for children for several years - without sufficient financial support because the industry did not consider children worth investing in. But now things have changed. BRIC has given me the opportunity to hand down my knowledge to the next generation of researchers, to dedicate myself to scientific innovation."
