Researchers from China visited our new Institute

Prof. Boccaccini und Prof. Jie Wei

In the framework of the academic exchange program “Fabrication and osteogenesis of hierarchical scaffold of mesoporous Mg-doped bioactive glass/PBS composites” with the Engineering Research Center for Biomedical Materials of Ministry of Education in East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, China, we received on 16th August the visit of Prof. Jie Wei together with PhD students Zhaoying Wu and Jue Zhang, who have spent a longer research period in our Institute. The project is supported by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The visitors took the opportunity to tour our new building and research facilities in Erlangen-West. We are currently collaborating with the group of Prof. Wei in the development and characterization of metallic ion doped bioactive glasses and their application in bone tissue scaffolds. Kai Zheng (PhD student) is leading the participation of our Institute in this collaboration.
