Imperial College London based Research Group


All PhD students supervised by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, who were based at Imperial College London (Department of Materials), have successfully completed their PhD theses by August 2014.

Currently Prof. Boccaccini, as visiting professor in the Department of Materials, Imperial College London, is collaborating with Prof. Mary Ryan in the field of bioactive coatings for medical applications [1] and with Prof. E. Saiz and Prof. J. R. Jones in the framework of the EU ITN project BioBone.

Other collaborators at Imperial College London are:
Prof. W. E. Lee (Materials), Prof. C. Cheeseman (Civil Engineering) [2], and Prof. M. S. Shaffer (Chemistry) [3].

Prof. Boccaccini currently teaches in the MSc in Composites at the "Composites Centre".
