SPINNER is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) European Industrial Doctorate (EID) aimed at improving treatments for spine disorders.
In early December 2018, the SPINNER Fellows and their supervisors journeyed to the town of Tuttlingen for their first training event at the Aesculap Academy where they were introduced to the range of spinal implants and surgical tools that had been developed and manufactured by medical device company Aesculap AG.
The training included a hands-on workshop demonstrating the spinal plates and fixtures on plastic models of the cervical and lumbar spines. This provided an invaluable grounding of the practical application of the SPINNER Fellows research projects.
