CCMM are very pleased to report that at the recent European Society for Biomaterials conference in Dresden 9-13 September, 2 members of our PhDs were awarded prizes. The details are:

Reece Oosterbeek

Reece Oosterbeek was awarded "Best Student Poster Presentation" for his poster on the evolution of polymer blend structure and mechanical properties during degradation. The poster was entitled "Controlling structural relaxations, mechanical properties, and degradation timescale of PLLA during hydrolytic degradation".

Rob Murphy






Rob Murphy was awarded "Best Student Presentation" for his talk on "Highly aligned collagen-based scaffolds with controllable stiffness for neural regeneration."

Both won a prize of two hundred euros.
