“BiomaTiCS – Biomaterials, Tissues and Cells in Science” are the areas of interest of our research. The institutes involved in BiomaTiCS try to identify the causes of undesired tissue reactions on implant materials and to better control the tissue reaction through targeted material and surface modifications.
