IMCOSS: Injectable medical ceramics for bone repair and augmentation


The repair and regeneration of bone tissue remains a significant clinical challenge in many clinical fields including orthopaedics, dentistry, and maxillofacial surgery. The problem is increasing in the face of complicating factors such as the ageing population. The aim of this project is to undertake a basic scientific study of new nanostructured biomaterials that will underpin the development of new nanostructured, injectable bone graft substitutes.
