Visit from Poland
We are hosting the visit of two scientists from West Pomeranian University of Technology (ZUT), Polymer Institute, Biomaterials and Microbiological Technologies (Head: Prof. Mirka El Fray), Szczecin, Poland: Dr. Agnieszka Piegat and Ms. Agata Niemczyk, MEng (pictured with Ms Lena Vogt, PhD student, Dr. Liliana Liverani and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini). We collaborate with the Division of Biomaterials and Microbiological Technologies at ZUT in the framework of the DAAD PPP funded project “Fabrication and mechanical characterization of electrospun mats for cardiac tissue engineering”. Dr. Piegat presented the seminar “Biopolymer Research at ZUT Division of Biomaterials and Microbiological Technologies”. Our collaboration has led to several joint publications, including our paper in European Polymer Journal .
