Mike Hofmann is a Senior Lecturer in Biomaterials and also the Admissions Tutor for the Biomedical Materials Science course.
Mike has published more than 40 papers and abstracts in the field of bone cements, dental cements and controlled drug delivery. His research has been supported by the European Union, the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and an industrial sponsor.
He teaches students in 4 different clinical and non clinical courses from two Schools and Colleges.
Mike Hofmann graduated in Experimental Physics at the University of Wurzburg, Germany, in 1998 and obtained his doctorate in the Department for Functional Materials in Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Wurzburg in 2003.
In 2004 Mike came to the Biomaterials Unit, School of Dentistry, University of Birmingham as an EU Marie Curie Research Fellow. He was then appointed as a Lecturer in Biomaterials at the School of Dentistry in 2006.
Mike Hofmann is interested in supervising doctoral research students in the following areas:
Calcium phosphate cements for orthopaedic and dental application.
Portland cement based cements for dental application.
