Visit from Modena: Prof. Valeria Cannillo

Prof. Valeria Cannillo, Privatdozentin am Department für Ingenieurwesen "Enzo Ferrari", Universität Modena und Reggio-Emilia, Italien, mit Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini

Professor Valeria Cannillo, Associate Professor at the Department of Engineering “Enzo Ferrari” University of Modena and Reggio-Emilia, Italy, visited the Institute of Biomaterials on 16-17 February 2016. We have collaborated with Prof. Cannillo’s research group more than 10 years. Our early joint projects were in the field of glass matrix composites and porous glasses, while Prof. Boccaccini was at Imperial College London [1, 2]. Based on our current common interests in the field of biomaterials we are planning new collaborative research in the field of bioactive glasses and tissue engineering scaffolds.
