Osteoimmunomodulation: A new aspect for the development and evaluation of bone biomaterials

Chen, Zetao (2015) Osteoimmunomodulation: A new aspect for the development and evaluation of bone biomaterials. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis successfully introduced the intellectual framework of immunology in the development of bone biomaterials. The project identified the regulatory role of biomaterials to the immune-response in terms of bone formation and healing of bone defects. The novel methods developed in the project will significantly change the ways of biomaterials assessment and evaluation.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
