Porous Ti used in metal implants
The joint publication (no pun intended) involved colleagues from the Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Dr Charl FJ Faul, former Faul PhD student Dr Judith Brown and undergraduate project student Jon Knapp. The paper discusses the newly developed and patented method for the fuctionalisation of Ti (implant) surfaces for enhanced bone cell growth, a new area of activity for the Faul Research Group.
