2018 Royal Society Summer Exhibition
Every year, the Royal Society in London hosts a week long Summer Science Exhibition. This exhibit is open to all members of the public, and aims to communicate the cutting-edge science happening within labs. This year, Professor Matt Dalby’s group was invited to London with Professor Manuel Salmeron-Sanchez’s group to show work from the newly formed merger group “The CeMi” (formed from the old Centre for Cell Engineering and the Microenvironments for Medicine groups).
The work presented by the CeMi group centred round the use of biomaterials, and was titled “Material Matters: Biomaterials for Bone Repair”. The Roal group enjoyed discussing the benefits of using biomaterials in regenerative medicine, and were able to inform attendees about their work with Sir Bobby Charlton’s ‘Find A Better Way’ charity, which uses nanokicking and poly (ethyl acrylate) surfaces to help restore bone function in landmine survivors.
