The event was organised by Prof. D. De Ligny (Chair for Glass and Ceramics) (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini) and attracted a wide audience from inside and outside the University. Dr. Judith Roether, affiliated with the FAU Chair for Polymer Materials and visiting researcher at the Institute of Biomaterials, presented the talk “Glass in the body: from bone implants  to wound healing”. Our Institute had also a stand demonstrating the applications of glass in medicine.
