Visit of scientists from McGill University in Montreal, Canada
In the framework of the Quebec-Bavaria Collaboration on “Nanocomposite biomaterials for bone regeneration” Prof. S. Nazhat and PhD students Benedetto Marelli and Chiara Ghezzi from the Department of Mining and Materials Engineering, McGill University in Montreal (Canada), visited our Institute on 8th – 10th March. This collaboration started earlier this year between both research groups and the objective is the development and characterisation of a new family of nanostructured collagen-bioactive glass composites following results presented in our previous joint paper
Three-dimensional mineralization of dense nano fibrillar collagen-Bioglass® hybrid scaffolds
B. Marelli, C. E, Ghezzi, J. E. Barralet, A. R. Boccaccini, S. N. Nazhat, Biomacromolecules, 2010. 11(6): p. 1470-1479.
Alexander Hoppe and Jasmin Hum of our Institute will visit McGill later this year.
