Collaboration with Croatia

A project in the field of “Cu-Bioglass in bone regeneration strategies“, a collaboration with Dr. Neven Zarkovic and Dr Lidija Milkovic of Rudjer Boskovic Institute in Zagreb (Croatia), has been approved by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for funding.
Dipl.-Ing. Alexander Hoppe, Dr.-Ing. Rainer Detsch and Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini are involved in this project which involves the development and characterisation of Cu-containing bioactive glasses and the investigation of osteoblast cell growth in contact with such novel silicate glass compositions.
