Biomaterials joined forces with collaborators from Palma de Mallorca
Department of Biomaterials joined our collaborators in Spain for a very interesting and productive scientific workshop on surface development of biomaterials.
Most of the researchers and technicians from our department travelled to Palma de Mallorca to visit our collaborators at the University of the Balearic Islands and took part in a scientific workshop 25th - 29th September that focussed on the development of novel coating strategies of medical devices for improved osteointegration. The workshop was organised by Marta Monjo and her research group at the University of the Balearic Islands.
As part of the workshop, the Oslo Biomaterials group had a chance to attend the PhD thesis defences of María Satué and Manuel Gómez-Florit, two of the PhD candidates from the Palma group who visited Oslo earlier this year. In addition to the defence lectures, we had the chance to listen to keynote lectures from the opponents and most of the participants from Oslo also presented their recent research results. Full programme for the workshop is available here.
The workshop was funded by NILS Science and Sustainability Programme (ES07 EEA Grants), which also funded both María and Manu to spend three months in Oslo during last winter and three month research visits for our PhD candidates Benjamin Müller and Oscar Villa to spend at Mallorca this autumn.
