A new project on Novel bionanocomposites for bone tissue engineering, led by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini (Institute of Biomaterials) and Prof. Dimitri Bikiaris (Chemistry Department, Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry and Technology, Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece) has been approved for funding by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The project involves the visits of the principal investigators and exchanges of experienced and young researchers between the institutions involved. The project focuses on the development and characterisation of a new family of bioactive nanostructured polymer matrix composites for bone tissue engineering, which exploits nanoscale topography to enhance cell attachment and proliferation.
