Pr Pierre Weiss, PhD, DDS, received his dental doctorate in 1989, his Master of Science in Biomaterials (Nantes) in 1993, and his PhD in Biomaterials (Nantes) in 1997. He is Professor in Biomaterials at the University of Nantes in the dental surgery department and hospital. He was the Head of the INSERM / Nantes University Unit 791, Centre for osteoarticular and dental tissue engineering, National institute for health and medical research (INSERM), UMRS 791LIOAD. He is now Head of REGOS team in UMRS 1229 RMeS Unit. His scientific activities are:

  • Skeletal tissue engineering
  • Physiochemistry in hydrophilic polymer to make hydrogels for synthetic extra cellular matrix
  • Bone substitutes

His research interests include the chemistry and characterization of macromolecular solution and hydrogels to prepare synthetic extracellular matrices for tissue engineering of cartilage and bone. His scientific skills are macromolecular chemistry and characterization. He has 2 main fields of research in Biomaterials: injectable bone substitutes like suspension of calcium phosphate ceramics or calcium phosphate cements, and self cross-linking hydrogels of polysaccharides for tissue engineering and drug delivery systems. In 2015, he began a collaboration with HTL for translation of polysaccharide silanization to hyaluronic acid. He also managed clinical research in Odontology. He is currently the scientific director of the Regenerative medicine cluster “Bioregate” created in 2015. He is the president of the society for biohydrogels, the vice dean of the Nantes Dental School and in the Scientific Council of Nantes University. He was nominated Fellow, Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE) for the World congress of Biomaterials WBC 2020 (for WBC members who have gained a status of excellent professional standing and high achievements in the field of biomaterials science and engineering).
