On 29th August Prof. A. R. Boccaccini met in London Dr. P. Jackson (Lucideon), Dr. K. Atkinson (University of Cambridge), Dr Pooja Bassnet (University of Westminster) and Dr. M. Cresswell (Lucideon), who are research partners in the EU FP7 Project “Reinforced Bioresorbable Biomaterials for Therapeutic Drug Eluting Stents” (ReBioStent). This project is being carried out in the framework of FP7 Theme on Biomaterials for Advanced Therapies and Medical Devices in the neurological/neuromuscular or cardiovascular fields. The project aims at developing a resorbable cardiovascular stent that should replace current state of the art stents. The Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, is involved in the synthesis and characterisation of a range of suitable functionalised composite materials for fabrication of biodegradable stents. (Click image to enlarge)
