Bubendorf, Switzerland, Wednesday, April 26, 2017 – The Swiss Nanoscience Institute has granted CIS Pharma funding for an innovative project in the field of implantology. The Project is a collaboration between the University of Applied Science, FHNW in Muttenz and the High-tech Research Center in Basel. During this project a biocompatible membrane is developed to enhance tissue regeneration at the interface of soft and hard tissue. The membrane targets improved osseointegration of implants by preventing soft tissue cells from overgrowing the novel bone tissue. The membrane is designed to be compatible with common 3D printing technologies to enable patient specific applications.
