Visit from Buenos Aires

Prof. Dr. Viviana Mouriño zu Besuch an unserem Lehrstuhl

Prof. Dr. Viviana Mouriño 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.The following review paper has been recently published:
Mouriño, V., Cattalini, J. P., Roether, J. A., Dubey, P., Roy I., Boccaccini, A. R., Composite polymer-bioceramic scaffolds with drug delivery capability for bone tissue engineering, Expert Opin. Drug Deliv. 10 (2013) 1353-1365.  (Click image to enlarge)
