Prof. Boccaccini visits Catholic University of Salta, Argentina
On August 23-26, 2012, Prof. A. R. Boccaccini and Dr. J. A. Roether (Institute of Polymer Materials, FAU) visited the Catholic University of Salta (UCASAL) in Argentina. They were invited speakers at the Biomaterials Workshop organised by Dr. A. Gorustovich, a CONICET researcher at UCASAL (in the picture with Prof. Boccaccini and Dr. Roether).
There is a long standing research collaboration between Prof. Boccaccini and Dr. Gorustovich in the field of angiogenic effects of bioactive glasses, which has led to a series of publications, including the review paper:
Gorustovich, A. A., Roether, J. A., Boccaccini, A. R., Effect of bioactive glasses on angiogenesis: A review of in vitro and in vivo evidences, Tissue Eng. Part B 16 (2010) 199-207.
Dr. Gorustovich visited our Institute earlier this year with a fellowship of DAAD.
