Evonik, TESco join British nano resorbable polymer project


Evonik (Essen, Germany) and TESco Associates (Tyngsborogh, MA) are joining a research project aimed at developing medical resorbable plastic nanocomposites for use as surgical implants in place of metal.

Leading the project are researchers at the University of Nottingham who have been awarded a $1.9 million grant by the U.K. Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council to produce research on the engineering of nanomaterials "that could transform the global healthcare industry". EPSRC is the primary UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, with an annual spending budget of more than $1.3 billion.
