Doctoral thesis success in Erlangen: Anahi Philippart

On 6th July 2016 Anahi Philippart successfully defended her doctoral thesis in the field of mesoporous bioactive glasses for bone tissue engineeering, which was carried out under the supervision of Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini at the Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. In addition to the research articles published from the results of her thesis (for example [1]), Anahi also co-authored a comprehensive review paper on the development of polymer coated bioactive glass scaffolds [2]. We congratulate Anahi on achieving her doctoral degree and wish her all the best in her future career.
