Visit from Poland
Prof. Mirka El Fray, Head of the Division of Biomaterials and Microbiological Technologies, Polymer Institute, at West Pomeranian University of Technology (ZUT), Szczecin, Poland, is visiting our Institute. We collaborate with Prof. El Fray’s research group in the framework of the DAAD PPP funded project “Fabrication and mechanical characterization of electrospun mats for cardiac tissue engineering”. On 11th December 2017, Prof. El Fray presented the seminar “Recent advances on biodegradable copolyesters engineered by enzymatic catalysis”. Our collaboration has led to several joint publications, including our paper in European Polymer Journal .
