Sander Leeuwenburgh (Dept. of Dentistry), theme Reconstructive and regenerative medicine, and Roland Brock (Dept. of Biochemistry), theme Nanomedicine, were recently awarded with a grant of 581 k€ by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO, domain Applied & Engineering Sciences AES) to develop new biomaterials for improved regeneration of bone defects.
The biomaterials will incorporate nanomedicines for delivery of messenger RNA to produce growth factors that promote bone healing over extended periods of time.
