Visiting student (Northwestern Polytechnical University, China)
Study of the effect of two-element doped mesoporous nano-gels on the repair of open wounds
Supervisor in Erlangen: Dr. Kai Zheng, Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini
Meng Li is currently enrolled in the School of Life Sciences of Northwestern Polytechnical University, China. The subject of her master’s degree involves mesoporous silica nanoparticles for biomedical applications, including antibacterial ion doped nanoparticles for both coatings obtained by electrophoretic deposition and for nanogels for wound healing.
Her project at the FAU Institute of Biomaterials involves the full characterization of a series of 2-element doped mesoporous silica nanoparticles including assessing cell biology response and antimicrobial properties.
