We are hosting 4 senior researchers from the Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass (FunGlass) at Alexander Dubček University of Trenčín, Slovakia, in the framework of our international collaboration in the field of bioactive glasses and biomedical materials.

Currently Dr. Martin Michalek, acting Head of the FunGlass Department of Biomaterials and other 2 senior researchers, Dr. Jozef Prachar and Dr. Si Chen, are carrying out a research training period at the Institute of Biomaterials in Erlangen in different areas of bioactive glass and technology, developing novel bioactive glasses and composites for regenerative medicine, wound healing and drug delivery. In addition, Dr. Zuzana Neščáková is concluding her 1-year training in the general field of sol-gel bioactive glasses (all pictured with Dr. Liliana Liverani and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini).

Our Institute leads the training of personnel (PhD students, Post-docs) of the FunGlass Centre in the field of Biomaterials and Prof. Boccaccini is a partner project co-director and member of the Centre’s scientific board.
