NIH Funding


Zn Stent

Surface Innovations research team just got awarded with a two-year grant by the NIH – National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. We will study the effects of surface finishing of biodegradable Zn alloys on their biocompatibility and biodegradation rate. The project is a collaborative effort between SURFI team and research team led by Prof. Goldman from Biomedical Engineering. Prof. Martin Bocks from the University of Michigan will assist the Michigan Tech researchers in this project with his clinical expertise.
Prof. Drelich would like to acknowledge Prof. Goldman, Prof. Bocks and Patrick Bowen for their strong contributions to the successful proposal that led to this funding.
