Prof. Boccaccini zusammen mit Prof. Chiara Vitale-Brovarone bei deren Besuch am Lehrstuhl Biomaterialien.

On 9-10 April 2019 we received the visit of Prof. Chiara Vitale-Brovarone, from the Department of Applied Science and Technology, Polytechnic of Turin, Italy. Prof. Vitale-Brovarone is scientific coordinator of the EU (Horizon 2020) funded project “MesopOrous matrices for localiZed pH-triggered releAse of theRapeuTic ions and drugs” (MOZART) in which our Institute is participating. We have collaborated for many years with the group of Chiara and co-authored a comprehensive review paper about applications of bioactive glasses in soft tissue repair [1], which is one of the most cited papers published in the J. of Non-Cryst. Solids in the last 5 years.
