Prof. Boccaccini: keynote speaker at World Biomaterials Congress in Montreal

Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini will be the keynote speaker in the New Frontiers symposium “Multifunctional biomolecular interfaces for orthopaedic applications” at the 10th World Biomaterials Congress (WBC) to be held in Montreal, Canada, May 17-22, 2016. The title of Prof. Boccaccini’s presentation will be: “Multifunctional and bioactive soft coatings by electrophoretic deposition”. The scientific program of WBC 2016 is available. Other presentations of our Institute will be “Electrospinning with benign solvents: feasibility study and versatile use of poly(epsilon-caprolactone) fibers” and “Functionalized poly(glycerol sebacate)/poly(butylene succinatedilinoleate electrospun scaffolds for cardiac tissue engineering” by Dr. Liliana Liverani, “Tailoring the degradation behavior and the bioactivity of pure Mg by polycaprolactone/bioactive glass coatings” by Ms Yuyun Yang (PhD student) and “Increase in VEGF secretion induced by particles of porous silica glasses containing CuO and SrO” by Prof. Boccaccini.
