About us

The Materials Processing Lab at the Department of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering (CMET), School of Chemical Engineering, AALTO University Foundation, conducts research on biomaterials development and evaluation for dental, orthopedic and tissue engineering applications.


  • Metallic alloys (Ti Gr.2, Ti Gr.5, TiNbZr(Si), TiGa, TiAlZrSi(Ga), NbZr(PtPd), CoCrMo…) and coatings (VPS Ti, EPD Ti, …)
  • Bioceramics and ceramic coatings (HAP, TCP, TiO2, Al2O3, ZrO2, BaTiO3…); aligned ceramic nanofibers (GAIN)
  • Hydrogels (NaHA, PVA, Gelatine, composite etc.)
  • Polymers (PLA, PE, PVA,…)
  • Biologicals (collagen, natural products, cellulose derivatives)
  • Tissue phantoms (bone, skin, …)
  • Cell-laden materials (hydrogels)


  • Orthopaedic and orthobiology (bone, articular joints)
  • Dental (restorative / regenerative; hard and soft tissues)
  • Soft tissue augmentation
  • Wound healing, immune reactions
  • Antibacterial solutions (biofilm prevention and control)
  • Injectables (indirectly: also for 3D bioprinting)
  • For in vitro applications (scaffolds for cells and virions research)
  • Perinatal derivatives and their applications
  • Particles release analysis
  • MedTech solutions promotion (with Health Incubator Helsinki, Aalto Health Platform, local and international organizations)
