SURFACE CHEMISTRY and BIOMATERIALS GROUP (SCBG):
Responsable: Jacques Lemaître
The SCBG is involved in research on biomedical materials based on calcium phosphates such as bone substitution materials, templates for bone tissue engineering, and carriers for sustained drug delivery systems.
SCBG investigates biodegradable synthetic bone substitutes (synthetic bone graft) for clinical applications in the fields of dental and maxillo-facial surgery, osteosynthesis, vertebroplasty, arthroplasty and palliative treatment of osteoporosis. SCBG holds a leading position in the field of injectable bone grafting materials based on Calcium Phosphate Hydraulic Cements (CPHC).
