EUROPEAN PROJECTS

 
 

ARE AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP RESEARCH

 
 
 
European projects are an excellent opportunity to develop research of high scientific interest and to propel Portugal to the level of the best international medicine, with co-financing. The Portuguese Face Institute has ongoing European projects BIO-DISCUS and ARTHUR.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Bio-discus

 
Project Title: Bio-discus
(CENTRO-01-0247-FEDER-039969)
 

PROJECT FEATURES: I&DT CO-PROMOTION COMPANIES

 
Notice Nº 33/SI/2015
This project is implemented in co-promotion by the Portuguese Face Institute (https://www.ipface.pt/), the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (R&D Centre, CDRSP - Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development, https://cdrsp.ipleiria.pt/) and AMCubed, and is included in Notice 33/SI/2015, with a duration of 36 months.

The bio-discus project aims to design and develop the first customized bioactive discs able to properly replace the temporomandibular joint disc, through 3D bioprinting to mimic the native disc, considering its biological and mechanical properties.
 
 
 
 
 

ARTHUR

 
Project Title: ARTHUR: 3D DENTOFACIAL SURGERY FULL PLANNING
(POCI-01-0247-FEDER-039690)
 

PROJECT FEATURES:

 
Notice 33/SI/2015
This project aims to develop a virtual surgery solution, in terms of bone and dental structure, able to predict the real impact on facial features. The solution will be cloud-based and enable the clinical staff to carry out the virtual surgery planning, using cutting guides and surgical plates or guides on a parameterized anatomical model of the head achieved by merging three exams: Cone Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT), Intraoral Scan and 3D Stereo Photogrammetry. Above all, based on this planning and using the parameterized anatomical model, it is possible to make a forecast and realistic representation of the impact of the surgical intervention on the patient's facial features.
