New Publication on Biodegradation of Mg

In our new study on bioabsobable implants, just published in the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research A (Vol. 102, Issue 3, pp. 341-349), we present an in vitro – in vivo biocorrosion correlation for pure magnesium. The studies rely on … Read More »

Editorial Board Member

Prof. Drelich has become a new member of the External Advisory Board for Materials journal. This is one of the most successful open access journals that publishes papers on manufacturing, processing and characterization of all types of materials. Read More »

Bioabsorbable Stents Bioabsorbable Stents
We search for new biodegradable alloys that could revolutionize cardiovascular stent industry.
Antibacterial Materials Antibacterial Materials
We invented new inexpensive antibacterial material and explore its potential applications in water filtration, food packaging, and many others.
RHX Ceramic Dating RHX Ceramic Dating
We study the rates of rehydration and rehydroxylation processes for fired clay-based ceramics as a tool for dating ceramic archeological artifacts.
Smart Surfaces Smart Surfaces
We architecture nanostructures, nanotubes, and molecular layers to control wetting or other properties of surfaces.
Mineral and Materials Processing Mineral and Materials Processing
We have a long tradition of development and testing physical separation technologies for selective recovery of minerals from ores, plastics from waste, and cellulose fibers from wastepaper.
