Advanced Materials Research Group

The core expertise of the group includes development of novel resorbable phosphate-based glasses in various geometrical forms (spanning particles, microspheres and fibres) and their bioresorbable composites for bone repair and regeneration applications.

These unique biomaterials are being explored for development of novel bioactive scaffolds mainly directed towards differentiation and delivery of stem cells within niche 3D environments, advancing new approaches towards tissue regeneration.

This group was also the first to develop highly porous microspheres from phosphate-based glasses via a melt-derived route, which is now being expanded towards other Bioglass types (i.e. bio-silicate and borate glasses).
