Biomedical materials play an integral role in biomedical application these days - restoring function and facilitating healing for people after injury or disease. Biodegradable metals, also known as bioresorbable or bioabsorbable metals, are compatible with human tissues and degrade to nontoxic by-products. Biodegradable metals have attracted a great attention in the field of biomedical implants owing to their advantages over non-biodegradable metals such as stainless steel and titanium-based alloys.

This research group focusses on the surface modification. Design and fabricate of new biodegradable metals alloys suitable for clinical application.

The main goals are:

  1. Design new Biodegradable metal alloys
  2. To develop methods to specifically modify Biodegradable metal surfaces, and
  3. To translate these biodegradable metals to applications in the field of regenerative medicine, with a focus on bone and dental applications.
