9 March 2016


A collaborative agreement between the Eastman Dental Institute and Dankook University has been signed to expand collaborations between the two institutes.

As part of an initiative funded by the Korean National Research Foundation, under the Global Research Laboratory scheme, funding has been agreed to develop a long term program of visiting researchers to come to UCL to work at the Eastman laboratories.

The program involving Professor Jonathan Knowles, Dr James Phillips and Dr Laurent Bozec will develop a new generation of biomaterials for a wide variety of clinical problems, including neural and musculoskeletal.
