Surface Innovations Team welcomes a new member Dr. Jan Seitz. Dr. Seitz has strong expertise in formulation and testing of bioabsorbable implant materials and comes from the Leibniz Universität Hannover in Germany. He developed process chains for resorbable Mg-implant applications such as stents, intramedullary nails, and sutures. This work included basic processes such as casting, hot-extrusion, heat treatment, drawing and coating procedures, as well as many analytical processes. We are very happy and fortunate to have him in our program on bioabsorbable stents.
