After recently winning the best oral presentation at the Dutch edition of the National Student Speech Contest, organized by the Dutch Ceramic Society, Sónia de Lacerda Schickert, theme Reconstructive and regenerative medicine, will now represent the Netherlands at the XVI conference of the European Ceramic Society in Torino, Italy.

Sónia, dentist and researcher of the Department of Biomaterials, focuses her work on the development and optimization of calcium phosphate cements for advanced bone regeneration strategies. In Torino, Sónia will have the opportunity to share her research at one of the most important events showcasing recent advances in ceramic science and technology and compete with representatives of the other country members at the European ECerS Student Speech contest.
