Project Description

Ever since bioactive glasses were discovered in 1969, they have traditionally been used for bone repair and regeneration. However, they carry other useful purposes as well, and have shown they have potential in long-term drug delivery. I have characterized Mo-Sci's OL-GL 1756B and proven that with their porous structure they can both absorb solution and release it over a period of a few days.
