Prof. A. R. Boccaccini and Dipl.-Ing. A. Hoppe visit McGill University, Montreal, Canada
In the framework of the Quebec-Bavaria Collaboration on “Nanocomposite biomaterials for bone regeneration” Prof. A. R. Boccaccini and PhD student Alexander Hoppe (in the photo with Prof. Nazhat and students of McGill University) visited recently the Department of Mining and Materials Engineering, McGill University in montreal (Canada). Earlier this year, also Dipl.-Ing. Jasmin Hum visited McGill University. The visits were hosted by Prof. Showan Nazhat. The collaboration with the research group at McGill started earlier this year and it focuses on the developement and characterisation of a new family of nanostructured collagen-bioactive glass composites following results presented in our joint papers, for example ref. .
