In Turku, our team took a deep dive to the world of biomaterials. “Interfaces and interphases”, the theme for Biomaterials Days 2017, turned out to be spot on for our one-day road trip. We set out to meet an international crowd of researchers developing implants and fill materials for dentistry and medical use.
Invited by Dr. Leila Perea-Lowery and Dr. Pekka Vallittu, we wanted to meet with the Turku bioscience community, and to discuss how mathematical modelling could be used to help in designing better dental implants and make improvements in dental care.
“Good things happen when two fields of science meet”, says Sakari Soini, our CTO. “It’s the best starting point for innovation. In Turku, we met with people who drive innovation in biomaterials and material interfaces. It was great to continue from there! I was delighted with the level of knowledge, enthusiasm and the ability to innovate with the conference audience.”
Sakari also pitched Disior in the “Entrepreneurship interface” slot.
