2nd Egyptian-German Workshop on
Resorbable Bone Implants

Ulm University, Villa Eberhardt
July 17 - 18, 2015


Together with researchers and experts from Egypt and Germany we will have lectures and discussions about the mathematical modeling and simulation, the design and development of resorbable materials and it's clinical application as bone implants. 

The workshop belongs to a two-years series and is part of a BMBF-DAAD grant given to Prof. Gerd Baumann (German University of Cairo, GUC) and Dr. Ulrich Simon (Ulm University).
