Romy Linda Marek

MgSAFE / MedUni PhD Mentoring Program

Hello Romy, welcome back from the MgSAFE Workshop in Brüttisellen , Switzerland. What was the Training about?

We also learned about bone growth in general and what has to be considered when designing an implant for a growing bone. Since the workshop was held at SCANCO, which is a company based in Switzerland developing micro CTs, we learned about this imaging technique, as well as about image processing and optimization methods.
