Doctoral thesis success: Ms Sigrid Seuss

Frau Dr. Sigrid Seuß mit Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini

On 29th January 2016 Sigrid Seuss successfully defended her doctoral thesis in the field of electrophoretic deposition (EPD) of bioactive and antibacterial coatings for biomedical applications, carried out under supervision of Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini at our Institute. In addition to Prof. Boccaccini, Prof. S. Virtanen (Institute for Surface Science and Corrosion, FAU), Prof. N. Vogel (Institute of Particle Technology, FAU) and Prof. P. Wellmann (Institute of Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology, FAU) were the members of the doctoral defense committee. Sigrid was one of the first researchers to join the Institute of Biomaterials following its establishment in 2009 and Professor Boccaccini highlighted Sigrid’s significant initial contributions to the establishment of the electrophoretic deposition (EPD) laboratory at the Institute. Sigrid also represented our Institute at the 4th International Conference on Electrophoretic Deposition, held in Mexico in 2011. In addition to the research articles published from the results of the thesis, Sigrid also co-authored a comprehensive review paper on the emerging field of EPD of biological entities [1]. We congratulate Sigrid on achieving her doctoral degree and wish her all the best in her future career. (Click images to enlarge)
