Oral Cell Biology and Periodontal Research

项目介绍

The Centre of Dental Medicine at the University of Zurich is one of four dental university centers in Switzerland. It has approximately 400 employees and comprises six clinics, an institute, and a central administration department. The centre is highly ranked and promotes research at the highest level.

Project description:
The selected PhD candidates will conduct his/her research mainly in our laboratory (Head: Dr. L. Ramenzoni, PhD) on the project entitled: “In vitro analysis of biomaterials on human osteoblast cell response for bone tissue regeneration”. Molecular cell biology and imaging techniques will be used. The research project is run by the University of Zurich in collaboration with the University of Tampere (Finland, Prof. T. Peltomäki) and Omya International AG (Oftringen, Switzerland) as the industry partner.

Background and project summary:
Acquired or inherited alveolar bone defects can be regenerated with the use of a wide variety of biomaterials. The planned study aims to systematically analyse the biological behaviour of new bio-activated microparticles as a delivery system for bone regeneration. The study includes material characterization and cell research mainly using alveolar osteoblast cells.
