Hard-soft tissue interface based materials engineering research is required for bone and oral tissue engineering, using novel fabrication technique such as calcium phosphate based bio-mineral synthesis, soft-macromolecular materials (e.g. chitosan) for bone implants and tooth enamel surfaceengineering. The project aims to integrate materials synthesis with ultra-fast laser processing for tissue integration in vitro leading to future in vivo studies. The project aims to apply the techniques developed for damaged implant restoration in damaged bone and in enamels and surrounding gum tissue.You will undertake research developing a biomaterial to substitute damaged hard-soft tissue and then sintering using ultra-fast lasers.
