Biomat research group has participated in the meeting celebrated in Biodonostia Health Research Institute with the aim of developing collaborative research among Health Research Institutes, Technological Centers, University and Companies in the field of wound healing
Thanks to the progress made in producing biomaterials that can be processed by 3D printing developed by Biomat, and in acquiring and processing data for 3D printers carried out by Domotek, the biocompatibility of the products manufactured means that they can be used as tooling components or prostheses.
Chitin is one of the most abundant renewable materials in nature and has great potential for manufacturing biodegradable products. The UPV/EHU’s BIOMAT group is working to obtain chitin using alternative sources such as squid pens, and to then validate it as a reinforcing agent in the manufacture of protein-based materials for biomedical applications.
LASRA hosted the BIOMAT Research Group from the University of the Basque Country in San Sebastian, Spain on 27 April 2018.
