Poster contribution @ECERS 2019

During the XVI European Ceramic Society Conference, held in Turin from the 16th to the 20th June 2019, the PhD student Federica Banche Niclot presented a poster entitled "Large-pore mesoporous bioactive glasses for bone growth factor encapsulation and release", where she illustrated her first results on the investigation of new carriers for growth factor encapsulation and release. These carriers will be exploited in the ERC BOOST project for the protection of growth factors during the 3D printing process, in order to avoid their possible denaturation.

Oral contribution @ ECERS 2019

In the context of the XVI European Ceramic Society Conference that was held in Turin from the 16th to the 20th June 2019, the PhD student Giorgia Montalbano held an oral presentation entitled "3D printed scaffolds based on hybrid bioactive systems for bone tissue engineering applications", illustrating the ERC BOOST project idea and her first trials in the fabrication of the biomimetic scaffolds through 3D printing, as foreseen in the project.

Poster contribution @ RIT Spring meeting 2019

On the 24th May 2019, the Spring Meeting of the Department of Research, Innovation and Technology (RIT) of the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli of Bologna was held. In this context, the research fellow Giorgia Borciani presented a poster entitled "4-StarPEG cross-linked collagen composite containing mesoporous bioactive glass for bone application", where she illustrated the results of cell cultures performed on one of the hybrid compositions made by the Polito group to mimic the bone chemical composition and structure.
