Fabrication and characterisation of polymer-bioactive glass scaffolds for tissue engineering

Betreuer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini

Tissue engineering usually combines cells and a biodegradable 3D scaffold to repair diseased or damaged tissues. This research project deals with the development of composite scaffolds based on polymer and bioactive glass [1] for both hard and soft tissue engineering applications. These compsite scaffolds are characterised in the terms of microstructure, mechanical properties, biodegradability, cytocompatibility and bioactivity. Another research project is related to „Molecular communications“ and is carried out in the framework of the Emerging Fields Initiative (EFI) scheme of FAU. This research project concentrates on design and implementation of synthetic molecular communication systems based on natural mechanisms and processes. Communication between nano and micro objects such as bacteria or other cells.

Organic-inorganic (nano)composites for soft tissue engineering and wound healing

Betreuer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini

There are many different kinds of dressing materials available for treating wounds. Selecting the appropriate one must take into account the different types of wounds and also their healing states. This project involves the design and development of wound dressings based on organic-inorganic nanocomposites which can accelerate the healing process (addressing haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, maturation or remodelling). Moreover, this study will develop a new family of composites for enhanced wound healing, which should enable the remedial treatment of specific wounds in the shortest possible time. This is to be achieved without any side effects and with minimum scar formation and antibacterial properties.
