Visit to Aristotle University of Thessaloniki: DAAD (Greek-German collaboration)

Faina Bider and Zoya Hadzhieva in the lab in Aristotele University

Zoya Hadzhieva and Faina Bider (PhD students at the Institute of Biomaterials) visited the Chemistry and Dentistry Departments of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, from 17.05 until 26.05.2023 in the framework of IKY-DAAD Project on bioactive polymer-bioceramic scaffolds (FAU Principal Investigator: Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini).

The research groups of Prof. Eleana Kontonasaki and Prof. Dimitrios Bikiaris welcomed Zoya and Faina and guided them in their laboratories. During the research exchange, novel ultrafast in-situ forming hydrogels containing mesoporous bioactive fillers as innovative organic-inorganic scaffolds were produced and characterized.
