Enhancing bone regeneration by calcium phosphates with surface topography: A translational evaluation of synthetic bone graft substitutes

Luuk Van Dijk


What was your PhD about?

During my PhD, I studied the role of surface topography on calcium phosphate ceramics in their efficacy as bone grafts substitutes for maxillofacial and orthopedic surgery. This included fundamental, preclinical and clinical research of these materials.

What is your fondest memory of your time at RMU?

No memory in particular, but I was lucky to work in a very warm team of fellow PhD students in the Kaak-groep, to which I will always have good memories.

What are you going to do next?

I have started working as Scientific Affairs Manager at Kuros Biosciences, a biotech company in Bilthoven that develops orthobiologics for bone regeneration. In this role, I am responsible for the generation, translation and communication of scientific and clinical information about the technologies for both internal and external stakeholders.
