JECS Trust grant: Visit of Lorenzo Degli Esposti (ISTEC-CNR, Faenza, Italy)
In August 2019 we received the visit of Lorenzo Degli Esposti, PhD student based at the Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics (ISTEC-CNR) (Director: Dr. Anna Tampieri) in Faenza, Italy, where he carries out research under supervision of Dr. Michele Iafisco in the field of inorganic nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Lorenzo was a recipient of a JECS-Trust fellowship, sponsored by the European Ceramic Society(ECERS). We collaborate with the Bioceramics and Bio-hybrid Composites Group at ISTEC-CNR in the field of inorganic nanoparticles for bone tissue engineering and dental applications. On 29th August 2019, Lorenzo presented the lecture: “ISTEC-CNR Bioceramics and Bio-hybrid Composites Group: calcium phosphates from nanoparticles to organized hierarchical 3-dimensional scaffolds” in the framework of the Seminar series of the Institute of Biomaterials.
