Its objective is applied research in osseointegration with implants
Santiago de Compostela, October 7, 2020
Today the University of Santiago de Compostela signed an agreement with Mozo-Grau Ticare, a Spanish dental implant manufacturer, for the creation of the “Ticare Institutional Chair for Research in Osseointegration and Therapy with Implants”. Under the direction of Dr Juan Blanco, the Chair represents an advance for applied research in implantology that results in a better diagnosis for patients.
During the presentation of the Chair, Antonio Lopez, Rector of the University of Santiago de Compostela, emphasized that the health field and, specifically, biomedicine constitutes an “essential axis” for USC and that with this agreement “we add another stone to this project, a strategic element of the University”. Later, the Rector added: “The collaboration between the University of Santiago de Compostela and Ticare is part of the objective of opening the university’s activities to private entities that can collaborate in the training of our students,
Under the direction of Prof. Mariano Sanz this University Chair gives stability to the research projects that Ticare has been developing with the UCM for years
Last January, it was signed the Extraordinary University Chair between the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and Ticare, for the development of research and training plans in implantology in Spain and abroad.
In relation to this, Prof. Mariano Sanz remarked: “This model of Extraordinary University Chair allows a direct transparent collaboration based on scientific development between a university and a private company. This enables us to formalise research and training projects in a stable way and within an initial period of three years. Moreover, UCM and Ticare had already been carrying out research projects for almost four years, and from now on, thanks to this Chair, a medium-long-term programme and a greater formalization of it will be carried out”
