5th Egyptian-German Workshop on
Resorbable Bone Implants

Ulm University, Villa Eberhardt
July 28 - 29, 2017


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 their clinical application as bone implants. 

This workshop is the third one taking place at Ulm University and belongs to a program granted by BMBF/DAAD to Prof. Gerd Baumann (German University of Cairo, GUC) and Dr. Ulrich Simon (Ulm University).
