ACS Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering Symposium 2017

 

Biomaterials Science is proud to sponsor the PMSE Symposium: Synthesis, Self-Assembly & Applications of Peptides & Polypeptides, at this year’s ACS Fall meeting.

The conference, which will take place from 20-24 August in Washington, DC, offers scientific professionals a legitimate platform to present, publish, discuss and exhibit the most exciting research discoveries and technologies in chemistry and its related disciplines, as well as providing them a greater understanding of the role chemistry plays in the global economy, health, safety, and the environment.

The PMSE Symposium, held on Sunday 20 August and organised by Jianjun Cheng and Hua Lu, will cover topics such as:

  • Design and self-assembly of polypeptide and elastin-like amphiphilic copolymers
  • Development of polypeptide hydrogels for central nervous system therapy
  • Scaffold directed cooperative polymerization of amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides
  • Versatile star-shaped polypeptide conjugates with controlled self-assembly as therapeutics

Registration is now open – click here to register now and take a look at the programme overview.

IMRC 2017 – Biomaterials for Tissue Regeneration

We are pleased to announce the Biomaterials for Tissue Regeneration symposium which will take place at the 25th International Materials Research Congress in Cancun, Mexico.

The symposium, endorsed by Biomaterials Science and held from 20-25 August, will gather together clinicians, biologists, materials researchers, engineers and industrialists to highlight the most recent advances on the interactions of biomaterials with cells and tissues.

The focus of the symposium is on the most novel knowledge on the cross-talking between biomaterials and biological systems, i.e how biomaterials, including biomimetic materials or emerging metallic alloys, ceramics, natural and synthetic polymers, composites, and adhesives, interact with proteins, blood, cells and mineral tissues in order to provide tissue regeneration.

Confirmed invited speakers:

Early bird registration ends on 31 May – click here to register now or visit the IMRC website for more information.

EMBO Conference 2017

23-26 May 2017, Heidelberg, Germany

 

 

The EMBO Conference for Advances in Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine will take place this May at the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany, and will aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of stem cell biology.

The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. The conference will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease modelling. On this occasion a particular focus will be on ageing/metabolism and the link between these topics and tissue homeostasis/regeneration. These are emerging areas in the stem cell field, with considerable potential and huge societal relevance.

The meeting will also focus on the emerging and state-of-the-art single cell transcriptome techniques that are uncovering novel insights into stem cell populations.

Keynote speakers confirmed:

The full programme and other details are available on the website and registration is open until 12th April.
