Activities / Resume

Pierre WEISS is currently Professor of the University of Nantes in dental surgery department and hospital. He is the director of the research LIOAD U791. His research interests include the chemistry and characterization of macromolecular solution and hydrogels to prepare synthetic extracellular matrices for tissue engineering of cartilage and bone. His scientific skills is on macromolecular chemistry and characterization like FTIR, Rheology, mechanical experiments and material design with nano particles blended with viscous solution before injection and cross linking into a 3 dimensional scaffold with alive cell encapsulated inside the structure.
