Ms Maria Wątroba (AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland) finishes her KMM VIN fellowship in Erlangen
Ms Maria Wątroba, PhD student at the AGH University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Metals Engineering and Industrial Computer Science, Krakow, Poland, has completed her stay at the FAU Institute of Biomaterials, hosted by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. Maria was recipient of a visiting fellowship of the EUROPEAN VIRTUAL INSTITUTE ON KNOWLEDGE-BASED MULTIFUNCTIONAL MATERIALS (KMM-VIN). She carried out an experimental study investigating the biological and antibacterial characteristics of Zn-based biomaterials developed at her home laboratory, achieving interesting results to assess the biocompatibility of different Zn-based alloys with potential for short-term implant applications. We wish Maria much success in her future career steps!
