Tissue engineering is the use of cells, engineering and suitable biochemical and physico-chemical factors to improve or replace biological functions. Particularly, our group is focused on the assessment of new biomaterials and their utilization on innovative biomedical devices for tissue engineering applications.

Up to date our group has been working mainly on new bioactive coatings for titanium dental implants and on scaffolds for bone regeneration, using nanostructured ZnO as a novel biomaterial for their manufacture and electrospinning as the technique for their fabrication. Recently, the above mentioned studies were complemented with the development in our lab of 3D-Reconstruction software which intends to be used for recreation of bone defects, using ordinary computed tomography images.
