Kick-off meeting of new DFG project on bioactive glasses in Darmstadt
The kick-off meeting of the new DFG funded project on ion-doped bioactive glasses with outstanding high temperature crystallization resistance took place on 30th November 2016 at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt), hosted by the Institute for Materials Science, Dispersive Solids (Head: Prof. Ralf Riedel). The principal investigators Dr. Maria Isabel Gonzalo de Juan, Dr. Emanuel Ionescu, research student Mr Fangtong Xie (TU Darmstadt) and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini (FAU Institute of Biomaterials) (pictured) attended the meeting. This new 3-year project will develop a new family of multifunctional therapeutic-ions-containing bioactive glasses synthesized at TU Darmstadt which will be characterized for their intrinsic bioactive behavior at the Institute of Biomaterials in Erlangen.
