Dr. Dana Rohanova, University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, visits the Institute of Biomaterials

Prof. Boccaccini zusammen mit Dr. Dana Rohanova.

On 16th July 2018, Dr. Dana Rohanova, Assistant Professor, University of Chemistry and Technology, VSCHT, Department of Glass and Ceramics, Prague, Czech Republic, visited the Institute of Biomaterials and presented the invited seminar: “In vitro testing (with SBF) of inorganic biomaterials”. Dr. Rohanova toured also our laboratories in Erlangen-West.

We have been collaborating with Dr. Rohanova’s group for 10 years, since the time Prof. Boccaccini’s group was based at Imperial College London [1].

The interest of the collaboration is in the development of novel testing methods to characterize the biactivity of highly reactive biomaterials such as bioactive glass-ceramics [2, 3].
