The purpose of this research project is todevelop metal ion doped mesoporous bioactive glassnanoparticles (BGNs). These nanoparticles are will possess apatite-forming ability, antibacterial and angiogenic properties that are advantageous for bone regeneration or wound healing [1]. These BGNs are produced by using a microemulsion-assisted sol-gel method. They will be characterized in terms of chemical and physical properties, antibacterial activity and angiogenic property.
