Research training program at the Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg

In the framework of the EU funded (Horizon 2020) FunGlass project (GA n. 739566), (, Dr. Zuzana Nescakova is the first senior researcher from the Department of Biomaterials, FunGlass Center, Alexander Dubček University of Trenčín, (LINK: ) Slovakia, who joined the Erlangen Institute of Biomaterials for her one-year training, under the supervision of Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. Dr. Nescakova started her activities in Erlangen in November 2017, her research training focuses on sol-gel based bioactive glass synthesis and characterization. In her project, the synthesized bioactive glass particles are being used for the fabrication of electrospun composite fibrous mats for wound healing applications. Her training is related also to the fabrication of porous bioactive glass scaffolds and their characterization using a range of materials methods an in terms of biological activity.
