July/2011 – We welcome short-term visitors Dr. Selçuk Özcan (Assistant Professor, Bilecik University, Turkey) and Burçin Akgün (M.Sc. Student, Bogazici University, Turkey) to our lab. Selcuk and Burcin will get further research training in Canada, exposing themselves to drug delivery and tissue engineering research. Both will work on biomineralization of scaffolds, developing novel and mineralized scaffolds and exploring their use for applications involving biomineralization, bone regeneration and DNA delivery. We wish them a productive stay in our lab.
