Highly cited review paper on bioactive glass scaffolds

Our review paper “Bioactive Glass and Glass-Ceramic Scaffolds for Bone Tissue Engineering” written by Dr. Lutz-Christian Gerhardt and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, published in the Open Access journal “Materials” [1] is listed as one of the most cited papers published in the journal. The paper presents a comprehensive review of the field with emphasis on fabrication technologies for bioactive glass scaffolds and with a discussion on the microstructural-mechanical properties of scaffolds in relation to human bone.
