Special issue “Glasses in Healthcare” published in J. Non-Cryst. Solids

The special issue “Glasses in Healthcare” has just been published in Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids Volume 432, Part A, Pages 1-176, January 2016. This special issue was co-edited by Prof. A. R. Boccaccini and Prof. M. N. Rahaman (Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA. The special issue contains 21 papers, including 3 review articles, and it opens with an invited article by the inventor of Bioglass, the late Professor Larry L. Hench in which ten milestones in the history of Bioglass development, from concept to commercial applications, are described. The special issue contains 5 articles co-authored by researchers of our Institute [1-5].
