Study of the mineralisation, demineralisation and remineralisation processes of normal, abnormal and pathological calcifications in humans (tooth, bone, dental and urinary calculi, caries, …).

Formulation, setting and properties of hydraulic, condensation and acid-base cements (based on calcium phosphates, silicate and degradable glass) for the restoration of hard tissues with emphasis on the correlation between in vitro and in vivo behaviour.

Development and evaluation of degradable osteotransductive composite materials based on degradable polymeric matrices/calcium phosphate or bioactive glass for bone regeneration.
