We had our latest progress meeting via Zoom on 18th September 2020. Since the beginning of the project in April 2019, we were able to develop a new generation of hydrogels that is capable of mimicking specific soft tissues of the human body from the biochemical and mechanical points of view for appl...

Just before Christmas, on 20th of December, we met at the Chair of Biomaterials led by Prof. Aldo Boccaccini to discuss the latest advancements of our EFI project. We summarized and analyzed our recent results and decided about future research directions. We will continue to invite highly interest...

End of November Alina Weizel from the University of Rostock visited the group. She is working on modeling the electrical and mechanical stimulation of hyaline cartilage and also collaborates with Prof. Aldo Boccaccini and Thomas Distler from the Chair of Biomaterials (WW7) at FAU (shown on the pho...

In November, David Böhringer and Silvia Budday visited the Institute of Biomechanics led by Prof. Gerhard A. Holzapfel at Graz University of Technology. The aim was to characterize the complex mechanical response of collagen-based hydrogels using the triaxial testing device in Graz. We were abl...
