On 21-22 March we received the visit of Prof. Antonio J. Salinas, Department of Inorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry, Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), Spain. Professor Salinas is a member of the research group led by Prof. Maria Vallet-Regi at UCM. We are collaborating with Prof. Salinas in the field of mesoporous bioactive glasses with biologically active ion delivery. A paper resulting from this collaboration has been recently published [1]. Prof. Salinas visited also our Building II in Erlangen-West (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini) and informed himself on our research capabilities in the field of biofabrication.
