I am happy to have contributed to the continuity and growth of ESB in the last 8 years, particularly with the different initiatives and projects we started with the ESB presidents Matteo Santín, Pamela Habibovic and Ana Pego with whom I worked together. I thank all ESB members for the trust, in particular my colleagues of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM), for nominating me to the ESB Council back in 2015. I look forward to continuing participating and contributing to the activities of ESB in the coming years”.
