Focus Groups

Bioactive Material (BioMa)


BACKGROUND

BioMa is involved on the development, characterization and mechanical behavior of biomaterials used in the applications of biomedical implants and tissue enginnering. One focus of BioMa is on synthesis, characterization and fabrication of bioactive materials for biomedical implants. The research includes the synthesis of bioactive hydroxyapatite and the surface modification of metallic biomaterials.

Further, the group is also involved on the development biomimetic sca­ffolds used in tissue engineering. An electrospinning technique has been developed to produce networks of fibres with diameters one millionth of a metre or less. These fibrous networks mimic those found in many natural materials and have potential applications as human tissue replacements.


RESEARCH AREAS

The group involves in the research of the following areas:

  • Preparation and characterisation of bioactive materials
  • Surface modification of titanium for biomedical implant
  • Bioactivity and testing of biomaterials
  • Biodegradable materials including hydrogels
  • In vitro test (Simulated Body Fluid, SBF)
  • Electrospinning for tissue engineering
  • Mechanical testing
  • Finite element analysis for biomedical application

CONSULTANCY

BioMa is well equipped to conduct research and provide consultation in:

  • Electrospinning
  • In vitro test including Simulated Body Fluid (SBF)
  • Anodic oxidation of titanium
  • Characterisation of hydroxyapatite
  • Titanium dioxide
