First meeting in our new building in Erlangen-West
Staff, students and academic visitors of the Institute of Biomaterials were present at the general meeting which took place, for the first time, in our new premises in Erlangen-West (Ulrich-Schalk-Street 3, 91056 Erlangen) on 21st June 2016. It was an opportunity for several members of the Institute to visit for the first time the brand new laboratory facilities in the new building at the Erlangen Bioresearch Centre. Prof. Boccaccini explained that the new laboratory complex is a fundamental component of the interdisciplinary Biotechnology Campus on the 9,000 m² area in Ulrich-Schalk-Str., complementing the existing buildings at the site, which house offices and seminar rooms for the scientific personnel and international visitors. Three Institutes will perform research in this site, namely, our Institute (the Institute of Biomaterials), the Institute of Medical Biotechnology and geoscientists of the Institute of Endogenous Geodynamics. World class laboratories for materials science and biotechnology as well as cell biology laboratories with safety levels S1 and S2 complete the facilities at this Campus. The complex will be officially inaugurated on 8th July 2016 with the presence of authorities of the state of Bavaria, the city of Erlangen and of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
