Moser Medical has gained a worldwide avant-garde position for many years in the field of surgical hair restoration. This is confirmed not only by many satisfied patients but also by conferred international awards and research grants from leading associations of renowned hair surgeons for special achievements in the field of surgical hair transplantation. The Research Grant is awarded by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) ** to eligible research projects on the condition that the current research findings are continuously presented.
Research Grant 2007
"Research Grant" confirms the top position of Moser Medical
For their successful research, Moser clinics also received this year the "Research Grant". The "International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery" (ISHRS)** recognized with this grant for the fifth time the outstanding achievements and developments in the field of surgical hair restoration. The award was conferred for a scientific research project that provides information as to how a recently discovered pathway in stem cells affects the growth of transplanted hair follicles. Investigating the results of this study, the scientists newly hope to better understand the biochemical processes and so to further optimize future treatment methods.
Platinum Follicle Award 2005
The Moser-Method is in every respect excellent
At the 13th World Congress of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in Sydney, Dr. Walter Krugluger from Moser Medical was awarded with the Platinum Follicle Award. This world renowned award impressively confirmed the special quality of the top method of surgical hair restoration developed 30 years ago.
Since 30 August 2005, it has been declared in writing: the method of hair transplantation of Moser Medical is internationally absolutely top class. The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) praised on two occasions this year, the extraordinary achievements of the scientists. For their outstanding contribution in the field of surgical hair restoration, the Moser specialists received the "Research Grant" for the fourth time. In addition the high-profile ISHRS jury conferred the Platinum Follicle Award to Moser Medical for its global new results in the biotechnology research. This award is considered the highest international award in the segment of hair surgery and has been awarded only once to a European hospital.
Premio Ghirlamdina 2005
Meeting place of top researchers
In Modena, a town known to Ferrari fans around the world, the members of the “Italian Society for Hair Restoration” met to confer this year's “Award Premio Ghirlandina." Moser Medical was awarded for its excellent research in the development of hair surgery.
Research Grant 2004
Excellent spirit of research
Several prizes have been handed over this year in Sydney at the World Congress of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. Among other things, Moser Medical was awarded for the fourth time the "Research Grant" for their outstanding achievements in the field of surgical hair restoration. "This confirms us to use that our services continually remain at the highest level," said CEO Werner Moser very pleased by the multiple awards
Peaks in Hair Restoration 2004
International hair surgery
In June 2004, Moser Medical was again honoured by the Italian Society for Hair Restoration with the "Peaks in Hair Restoration” award for its extraordinary advances in hair restoration surgery. The quality method recognized by experts all around the world is mainly based on the system-specific preparation of very small groups of hair roots (follicles) that are removed from the dense fringe of hair. The extremely natural results are also guaranteed by the decades of optimized microsurgery.
Research Grant 2003
Research ensures excellence
Continuity is of major importance: for its research in the field of biotechnology Moser Medical was given the "Research Grant" this year again. The award handed over in the presence of the top-class audience, confirmed once more the technological leadership of Moser Medical in international hair restoration. "Through our ongoing research we could not only maintain our quality standards, but improve upon them," said Werner Moser happily in New York, as he high received the award from the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery the fourth time in a row.
2003 a colossal glory
"They have set milestones in research and applied science" acknowledged Dr. Marco Toscani, President of the Italian Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHR), handing over this year's “Award Colosseum” in Rome to the specialists of Moser Medical. The research team of Moser Medical was awarded in particular for quality and consistency of the scientific work related to the restoration of hair."

Research Grant 2002
Moser-experts find the key to the puzzle
Excellence is paying off: The hair experts of Moser Medical (MMG) could take over this spring the “Michelangelo Award” in Florence for their results in "technique for restoring hair". The Research Grant was also awarded a few months later. Here, the well-known experts jury, chaired by the Australian Dr. Richard Shiell appreciated the Moser experiments, which focused on the limited production shutdown of the transplanted hair roots groups (follicular units), keeping the international scientific community busy for a long time.
The essence of the problem is: although the newly transplanted hair roots grow a few millimetres of new hair after the transfer as expected, but these generally fall out, shortly afterwards and after a break of several weeks they begin to grow again. Biotech researchers especially in the U.S. have tried to find out for years the cause of this temporary cell death, without being able to provide satisfactory evidence. The Moser-team succeeded for the first time, in locating the exact spot at the temporary storage that is responsible during the transplant process (i.e. from the extraction of hair roots groups to the transmission to the recipient site) for the subsequent stagnation of growth.
In an extensive series of research, the Moser experts then took the spot in detail under the microscope to detect any obstacles to growth and to eliminate them. The key to the puzzle was presented in Chicago to the highly interested science colleagues. The essence of their discovery is that the currently used saline or Ringer solution used for temporary storage of the hair root groups carry the factors that lead to the temporary cell death. “For this reason, we have now created a new buffer to stop apoptosis," said Karl Moser. Certainly it has started a new chapter in the history of modern hair surgery.
Michelangelo Award 2002
Naturalness enjoys priority
Over 170 top medical experts from Asia, Europe and the USA followed in spring 2002 the invitation to the annual meeting of the Italian Society for Hair Restoration in Florence. One of the highlights of the event was the presentation of the “Award Michelangelo” to the Moser clinics. “After having assessed all the institutes of the world, we have decided to award the prize this year to Moser Medical, announced the expert jury and praised „the naturalness and stability of the decades of work“
** The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) has been working since 1992 as a non-profit organization including about 700 hair surgeon members worldwide. It is the first international company, with the aim of continuous quality improvement and training of professionals in the field of hair restoration surgery. The object of the ISHRS is to maintain and improve the science of the restoration of the natural hair image. Reviews of the standards of awards are subject to strict criteria. The results are presented to the members annually at international conferences.
