June 20, 2017
Professor Paul Hatton, from MeDe Innovation Theme 2A, was invited to present some of the research within MeDe Innovation to the 12th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology in Hawaii in May. This was to open the Larry Hench Memorial Session of the Glass & Optical Division session.
Professor Hatton presented on the use of inorganic modification to enhance bioactive glass compositions, and the manufacturing challenges related to the development of truly multi-functional medical devices that were capable of stimulating bone tissue regeneration while combatting infection. He said afterwards “Professor Hench pioneered the development of bioactive materials, and was in many ways one of the founders of modern regenerative medicine. It was a great honour to open his memorial session and present progress made by MeDe Innovation towards the manufacture of a new generation of medical devices.”
The Pacific Rim conference attracts approximately 1000 delegates, primarily from the USA, China, Japan and South Korea. This was a superb opportunity to showcase our research and programme to potential international collaborators in academia and industry.
