Sumy State University entered the consortium, which received funding from the HORIZON 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (MSCA-RISE) programme, due to the fruitful activity of the research group under the auspices of Doctor of Medical Sciences Maksym Pohorielov. 

As the programme provide the implementation of the scientific research including the academic exchanges of the researches from the partner countries, 44 visits of the representatives of SSU to the leading universities and companies of Europe and about 50 visits of foreign researches to Ukraine are planned.

The implementation period of "Nanostructural surface development for dental implant manufacturing" ("NANOSURF") project takes three years. As a result, a new generation of dental implants with a functional surface is going be created. It is going to improve the quality of life of the patients and to reduce the number of postoperative complications.

Considering that more than a million implants are installed every year, every patient can enter the risk group after a surgical procedure. To reduce this number, scientists have already worked on a surface that is resistant to the adhesion of the microorganisms and around which a bony tissue is formative. Such coating minimizes the emergence of the inflammation, periostitis and other postoperative complications.

The researches takes place at the laboratory of the Public Health Department of the Medical Institute at Sumy State University, in particular at the regional scientific center "Ecomedhim". The research process involves students, postgraduates and teachers who are the members of the Biomaterials Research Group.

«We have a very important part. Even a good surface model with an attractive appearance can be useless. We are working to avoid such result», - said the project manager in Ukraine Maksym Pohorielov.

SSU researchers jointly with the scientists from the University of Sheffield (UK), the University of Latvia and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy) will work on the project implementation. The project is supported by the industrial partners from Poland, Estonia and Latvia. The research is funded by the European Union.
