RESTORATION project has released its newsletter! Click here to download it. It is all about Resorbable Ceramic Biocomposites!

You will find updates about recent research activities from each work package and an overview of meetings attended and organised by the consortium. Enjoy the reading!

RESTORATION develops resorb-able bioceramic composite materials for three main applications: Osteoarthritis, Vertebroplasty (VP) and Kyphoplasty (KP), and Maxillofacial Fracture Fixation. The RESTORATION bioceramic cement offers new biological, mechanical and rheological properties thanks to advances in cellular medicine. Working in tandem with cells, proteins and other biologically active agents, RESTO-RATION aims to revolutionise many treat-ments and therapies. With the help of highly effective and early stage clinical in-terventions, bioceramics can offer solutions where no approach existed before. RESTORATION combines mechanical de-sign, materials, processing, clinical delivery and biological interaction. The project addresses these underlying research and technological challenges in order to develop new bioceramic products for five SME partner companies.
