Visit from McGill University, Canada

Will Lepry mit Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini

Will Lepry, PhD student at Materials Engineering, McGill University, Montreal, Canada, working under supervision of Prof. Showan Nazhat, is visiting our Institute in the framework of a DAAD funded project. Will’s research project at our Institute focuses on creating three dimensional bioactive glass based composites using advanced processing facilities available in the Erlangen Institute of Biomaterials. We have collaborated with Prof. Nazhat’s laboratory for almost 15 years, focusing on composite materials for tissue engineering applications [1], starting when Prof. Nazhat and Prof. Boccaccini were based at University College London and Imperial College London, respectively. Our most recent joint publication with the Nazhat’s laboratory has been recently published in the journal Biomaterials [2]. (Click image to enlarge)
