EU project ReBioStent: meeting in Erlangen
The progress meeting of the FP7 European project “Reinforced Bioresorbable Biomaterials for Therapeutic Drug Eluting Stents” (ReBioStent) was hosted by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini in our Institute on 28-29 July 2016. This project is funded within the EU FP7 Theme “Biomaterials for Advanced Therapies and Medical Devices in the neurological/neuromuscular or cardiovascular fields”. The consortium is developing resorbable cardiovascular stents that should replace current state of the art devices. Our institute is involved in the synthesis and characterisation of a range of suitable functionalised nanomaterials for fabrication of biodegradable stents. Ms Elena Boccardi (PhD student) and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini participated at the meeting representing our Institute.
