O mém projektu

The metals are implanted in various areas of biomedicine. Modified surface improves the mechanical properties and biocompatibility. Project is focused on material area – modifications of material surface by myself incl. application of nanotubes, and biological area – examination of cells behaviour (human osteoblasts and osteoarthritic osteoblasts) on material surface with use of SEM and AFM methods. The result of project would contribute to find new surface modifications and to compare the materials in terms of the mechanical properties, incl. the greatest adhesion of the cells.
