The MATEGRA project focuses on the development, optimization and testing of new types of biocompatible surfaces of titanium implants for improved osteointegration and bone tissue adhesion.
The intention is to gain the know-how for the production of new biomaterials and porous surfaces for the production of samples and for studying their biocompatibility.
The main objectives of the project are also the cross-border cooperation of research institutions and professional groups, as well as the transfer of knowledge about the development and testing of new porous biomaterials. The Trauma Surgery of the University Hospital Regensburg (UKR) and the Research Center - New Technologies (NTC) as part of the West Bohemian University (UWB) form a joint scientific research platform for the development of new porous biomaterials and the associated biological activity and compatibility testing.
