Visit of Prof. J. Chevalier, INSA Lyon, France
On 7th March 2016 we received the visit of Prof. Jerome Chevalier, director of the Materials Science (MATEIS) laboratory at the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) in Lyon, France. We have collaborated for 10 years with the group of Prof. Chevalier, particularly in the field of bioactive glass scaffolds , at the time Prof. Boccaccini was at Imperial College London, and, more recently within the scope of the EU ITN Project “BIOBONE” . We are planing further collaborations with Prof. Chevalier and his team, to investigate novel compositions of bioactive glasses for bone tissue engineering and also in the field of osteoclast cell activity on different bioceramic materials.
