On March 21, 2019, a one-day student seminar "BIOMATERIALS" took place at the UWB / NTC, which was implemented within the project No. 201 MATEGRA:
Advanced porous biomaterials functionalized with stem cells for enhanced implant osseointegration.
This is a cross-border cooperation program Czech Republic - Free State of Bavaria - EWO goal 2014 - 2020. Our project develops cooperation between NTC (New Technologies - Research Center) and UKR (University Clinic in Regensburg).
Lectures introduced students to the world of biomaterials, in which living and non-living materials are interconnected. They were acquainted with the basic types and properties of metal, ceramic and polymeric biomaterials, their properties and possibilities for implant applications. Attention was paid not only to basic information in the field of biomaterials, but also to the latest knowledge and state-of-art of still unsolved problems, especially in the field of orthopedic implants. The material section of the lectures was enriched by a contribution from colleagues from the University Clinic in Regensburg, which provided students with an insight into the issues of bone cell types and the interaction of cells with materials.
The workshop presented the research concept of the joint project NTC and UKR: Advanced porous biomaterials functionalized with stem cells to improve the osseointegration of implants (MATEGRA).
