Our participation at the Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials annual meeting and visit to BBCE in Latvia
Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini was a keynote speaker at the 15th Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials, held in Jurmala, Latvia, on 13-15 June 2022. Prof. Boccaccini attended remotely and presented the talk: “Bioactive glass meets biofabrication: new approaches for tissue engineering scaffolds”. Moreover PhD students Marcela Arango-Ospina and Zoya Hadzhieva attended the conference in presence. Ms Hadzhieva presented the oral contribution “Electrophoretic deposition of multi-layered antibacterial and bioactive coatings on chemically pre-treated titanium for biomedical application”. In addition, on 16-17 June Ms Hadzhieva and Ms Arango Ospina visited the Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence (BBCE) and provided a two-day training at Technical University of Riga, on functionalized scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. Bachelor, Master, PhD students and post-doctoral researches attended the training, which included a presentation and practical laboratory exercises. This on-site training is part of our Institute’s activities as international partner in BBCE.
