We hosted Prof. Diego Mantovani from the Laval University in Quebec City, Canada, on November 11. Prof. Mantovani delivered a seminar entitled Degradable Metals, Nanocoatings and Cellularised Scaffolds for Tissue Replacement and Regeneration to departments of Materials Science and Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. Entire research team benefited from this visit by this worldwide-recognized expert in biomaterials. Prof. Mantovani combines in his research engineering, medicine and biology, and aims to improve the clinical performance of medical devices for functional replacement, and to develop artificial organs. He has published nearly 200 original articles, holds 4 patents, and presented more than 100 keynotes, invited and seminar lectures worldwide in the field of advanced materials for biomedical applications.
