BBT PhD student Nerea García de Albéniz is one of the finalists for the SocieMat award for Best TFM in Materials Science, in the 2021 edition, with her TFM on “Laser-assisted surface modification of zirconia-based materials to enhance osteoblast response for dental applications “.
Nerea García de Albéniz, currently a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Carles Mas-Moruno (BBT) and Dr. Emilio Jiménez (CIEFMA), has become one of the three finalists for the Spanish Society of Materials award for best TFM in Materials Science 2021. The Spanish Society of Materials (SocieMat) is a scientific society whose objective is to promote the development, dissemination and communication of Materials Science and Engineering.
The student has been selected for her work on “Laser-assisted surface modification of zirconia-based materials to enhance osteoblast response for dental applications“, the result of her Final Thesis of the Master in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering – AMASE at UPC, under the direction of Dr. Carles Mas-Moruno (BBT) and Dr. Joan Josep Roa (CIEFMA).
The grand final will take place on November 3rd, where the three selected students will present their work, in order to win the Best TFM in Materials Science awarded by SocieMat, and represent the association in the competition European Master Thesis Award, to be held during the JR EUROMAT 2022 (Coimbra, Portugal).
