FunGlass PhD students at FAU Erlangen

Nurshen Mutlu and Fatih Kurtuldu completed their visiting training period at the international partner – Institute of Biomaterials, (LINK: at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, in the framework of the FunGlass project training program. The training program at FAU is coordinated by Dr. Liliana Liverani and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini.

Both, Nurshen and Fatih are enrolled as PhD students at both Universities (FAU and TNUAD) and are being co-supervised in co-tutelle by Prof. Dusan Galusek (University of Trenčín) and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini (FAU). Their projects involve the “Development and characterisation of mesoporous bioactive glasses for drug delivery and bone regeneration” (Fatih) and “Polymer-bioactive glass composites for wound healing” (Nurshen).

Another PhD student works at FAU this time. Fulden Dogrul who already completed a part of her training at the University of Padova (November 2019 – November 2020) continues with the research of her PhD topic “Highly Porous Scaffolds from Polymer-Derived Ceramics“ under supervision of FAU supervisors.

We wish all of them all the best in their research activities!
