Ib Holzmeister and Jan Weichhold win poster prices for FMZ at the 31st Bioceramics Conference in New Orleans:
BRAVƎ is an international research initiative aimed at the regeneration of heart tissue after a heart attack. The project brings together the latest scientific and technological advances in bioengineering or regenerative medicine such as 3D printing, biomaterials, and stem cells, as well as computational modelling to fabricate a biological device able to pump alongside a damaged heart, thus providing functional support.
Under the leadership of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra (Spain) and together with twelve other European institutions, the FMZ is co-operating in the project financed by the EU Horizon 2020 Programme with a total of €8M.

“Development of Dual Setting Cement Systems as Composite Biomaterials with Ductile Properties”
The University of Würzburg plans to build a “Center of Polymers for Life (CPL)“. Rating the new project as excellent, the German Council of Science and Humanities has recommended its implementation. The new building is set to be located on the JMU Hubland campus on a 1,570 square metre plot next to the Center of Chemistry and is estimated to cost around EUR 23 million plus another four million euros for large appliances and the initial equipment. Construction is expected to begin in 2020 and to be completed in 2024.
