The UK Society for Biomaterials will be holding their 15th annual conference from the 30th June – 1st July at the University of Westminster, London.
Journal of Materials Chemistry B and Biomaterials Science will be providing sponsorship in the form of a poster prize certificate and a year’s free access to the journal.
Professor Ipsita Roy from the University of Westminster is organising the conference and has included some special features for this year which are below:
- A dedicated Larry Hench session;
- ReBiostent session (an EU FP7 project); (on biodegradable drug eluting stents)
- KTN session dedicated to the industry/clinicians and
- A dedicated cell oriented session for TCES/ECPS members.
Professor Roy intends to promote a ‘varied experience of both excellent research in the area of biomaterials including state of art, innovative work with synthetic and natural polymers, complemented with their application in the production of near to market products including medical devices, tissue engineering scaffolds and controlled delivery constructs’.
