  A crystal engineering approach for novel Pickering formulations with controlled release properties
  Dr E Simone, Prof B Murray, Dr A Sarkar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims at developing novel sustainable, biocompatible multiphase formulations (e.g., emulsions, foams) for the controlled release of active ingredients, applying a unique crystal engineering approach.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
