Prof. Hernandez Alfaro, part of UIC’s new project to Fight against Periimplantitis

UIC Barcelona has recently announced the launch of a new research project: the Thematic Network of Bactericidal Biomaterials for the Fight against Periimplantitis, with funding from the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities (MCIU) - State Research Agency (AEI). This is a project coordinated by Xavier Gil, rector of the UIC, and with the participation of Prof. Hernández Alfaro among other researchers from numerous Spanish universities.

The objective of the project is to focus research on real problems by establishing a communication network between researchers working in biomaterials with bactericidal functions in oral implantology and clinicians investigating different strategies to reduce infection in patients who have been treated with dental implants. It is also proposed, among other measures, the organization of an interdisciplinary congress in dental materials.
