  • MSE-1 Design of Novel Copper-Phosphate (Cu-Ph) Glass Materials for Biomedical Applications

    Students: Jade Beland, Abbey Hageman, James Jenks

    Investigation into the processing and development of a cupric-phosphate bioactive glass (Cu-Ph-BG) for craniofacial reconstruction of the zygomatic bones. The resulting material produced aims to increase biocompatibility using copper as a self-sterilizing material, while maintaining osteogenesis and angiogenesis. Implementation of such a glass develops further on current bioactive glass research. Analysis will be done to determine an ideal composition of Cu-Ph-BG. Glass composition will be determined by creating glass frit for analysis in cell culture.
