Visit from Croatia
Prof. Dr. Neven Zarkovic of the “Rudjer Boskovic Institute” in Zagreb (Croatia) visited our Institute this week in the framework of our DAAD funded collaborative project “Cu-Bioglass in bone regeneration strategies”. The collaboration with Prof. Zarkovic and his team at the Laboratory of Oxidative Stress continues to focus on the biological characterization of Cu-doped bioactive glasses . A research paper has resulted from this collaboration . Visits of young researchers to Zagreb are scheduled and the project will be concluded at the end of 2014. In the photo: Dr. R.
