Prof Pierre WEISS

PhD - Research

Pr Pierre Weiss,  PhD, DDS, received his dental doctorate in 1989. He receives his Master of Science in biomaterial (Nantes) in 1993, his PhD in Biomaterial (Nantes) in 1997. He is Professor in biomaterials of the University of Nantes in dental surgery department and hospital. He is Head of REGOS team in UMRS 1229 RMeS Unit. His scientific activities are Skeletal tissue engineering, physiochemistry in hydrophilic polymer to make hydrogels for synthetic extra cellular matrix, bone substitutes. 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. He has 2 main field of research in Biomaterials. The first is about Injectable bone substitutes like suspension of calcium phosphate ceramics or calcium phosphate cements. He also develops self crosslinking hydrogels of polysaccharides for tissue engineering and drug delivery systems. He also managed clinical research in Odontology.   He was the scientific director of the Regenartive medicine cluster named “Bioregate” created in 2015. He is also the president of the society for biohydrogels, the vice president of BIOMAT. He was the vice dean of the Nantes dental school and in the scientific council of Nantes University. He as be nominated Fellow, Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE) for the Worl congress of Biomaterials WBC 2020 (for WBC members who have gained a status of excellent professional standing and high achievements in the field of biomaterials science and engineering).

About 250 ISI indexed publications, more than 200 communications, 50 invited lectures, 7 patents and Hirsh index: 56, 9480 citations.  Researcher ID : AAE-9260-2020
