Visit from Buenos Aires

Prof. Mouriño und Mr. Cattalini besuchen die FAU

Prof. Dr. Viviana Mourino and Mr Juan P. Cattalini of the Department of Pharmaceutical Technology, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, visited our Institute during September in the framework of the collaborative project “Design and development of novel matrices for tissue engineering and/or drug delivery for pathologies of high social and economic impact”. The project is funded by the International Bureau of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany, and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovative Production in Argentina. It involves the exchange of senior and junior researchers and has as main aim the development of multifunctional bioactive matrices in three dimensions (scaffolds) made from natural polymers and bioactive glass nanoparticles allowing the advantageous combination of therapeutic drug release and tissue regeneration in the same system.
