The Department of Biomaterials focuses at in depth studies of various bioactive materials based on bioglass, bioceramic and biopolymers and their treatment and functionalisation with the aim of adding them new functionalities. Strong cooperation with the Institute of Biomaterials at the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg led by prof. A. R. Boccaccini, respected leading personality in the field, gives momentum to research activities. The main focus of the department is to overcome the limitations of bioglass and biomaterials in general. The second area includes addition of new functionalities to bioactive materials, with specific focus on therapeutic factors such as targeted drug release.
