Biomaterials for Medical Applications

The Biomaterials research supports fundamental studies at the intersection of the physical, chemical, and biological sciences, where materials science is also immersed. Presentations focused on the preparation, characterization, structure-property relationships, and applications of biomaterials are encouraged. Emphasis is on novel design of biomaterials, including bioderived, bioinspired, biomimetic and biocompatible self-healing materials. General areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, self- and directed molecular assemblies, surfaces and interfaces, membranes and vesicles, gels and networks, carriers and drug delivery systems, smart and self-healing systems, tissue culture scaffolds, mineralization, hybrids and composites, multi-functional biomaterials such as photonic and electronic biomaterials. Other specific and interesting subjects that can be presented at the Bioamterials symposium include:

• Fundamental studies concerning both Biofilm-surface and cell-surface interactions.
• Bio-corrosion processes and methodologies to prevent it are important issues for the development of long-life metallic biomaterials.
• Bio-degradabale materials, both polymeric-based and metallic.
• Oral and poster sessions will include discussions on the frontier areas of development of new and functional Biomaterials.

Topics will include (but not be limited to):

. Tissue Engineering
. Surface modification of Biomaterials
. Drug delivering systems
. Biomineralization
. Degradable implantable materials
. Biomimetic materials
. Bactericide materials

Invited speakers (tentative):

Prof. Barbara Boyan (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA)
Dr. S. Lin-Gibson (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA)
Dr. G. Diamond (New Jersey Dental School, USA)
Dr. S. H. Dickens (American Dental Association Foundation, USA)
Dr. Mathew Mathew (Rush Medical Center)
