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 to
improve the osseointegration of implants.
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
