Visit from England

Dr. Tahera Ansari und Prof. Boccaccini

Dr Tahera Ansari, senior scientists at the Dept. Surgical Research, Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research (NPIMR), Harrow, UK visited our Institute on 20-21 January 2014. We have collaborated with Tahera’s group for several years in the field of scaffolds for tissue engineering. Recent results on bioactive scaffolds for bone regeneration have been published [1]. New developments involve the investigation of decellularised scaffolds for soft tissue regeneration. (Click image to enlarge)
