The 7th International Conference on Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD 2022) was held on 30.10.22 – 03.11.22 in Santa Fe, USA. Prof. Boccaccini was the chair of the conference with co-chairs Dr. B. Ferrari (Spain), Dr. A. Pascall (USA) and Dr. T. Uchikoshi (Japan). He presented the talk: “Electrophoretic deposition as technique of choice for antibacterial coatings on metallic implants?”  Zoya Hadzhieva, PhD student in our Institute, attended EPD 2022 and presented both an oral presentation titled “Electrophoretic Deposition of Multicomponent Coatings Incorporating Biopolymers, Phytotherapeutics and Bioactive Glass for Biomedical Applications ” and a poster titled “Electrophoretic deposition of zein/bioactive glass composite coatings doped with F and Cu on titanium for biomedical applications”. Asim Muhammad Akhtar, PhD student, attended online and presented the talk: “Electrofabrication and Characterization of Multifunctional, Asymmetric Bilayer Films Based on Chitosan‐Gelatin and Mesoporous Bioactive Glass Nanoparticles for Guided Bone Regeneration”. The next conference of the series, again chaired by Prof. Boccaccini, will be held in 2025 in Spain.
