TOPbiomat Project meeting

Aufnahme während des Treffens

On 29th October 2014 the progress meeting of the research project TOPbiomat was held at the Institute of Biomaterials. The project TOPbiomat is being funded by the Emerging Fields Initiative of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The project focuses on fundamental research and development of cell-based tissue structures using biofabrication approaches for regeneration of damaged tissues, for example, the regeneration of bone with integrated blood vessels. TOPbiomat is coordinated by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini with participation of researchers from the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine of our University. A recent publication from the project has recently appeared in PLOSOne [1].
