24th European Conference on Biomaterials


Sep 4, 2011 - Sep 8, 2011 | Dublin, Ireland (Republic of Ireland)

24th European Conference on Biomaterials

This Tier One Conference is expected to attract over 1,000 delegates including academics, clinicians and many leading medical technology industry representatives from around the world.
Starts on 04/09/2011
Ends on 08/09/2011
Category Biomaterials
Location Dublin, Ireland

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I would like to invite you to join us and colleagues from around the world in Dublin in September for what promises to be an exciting and informative conference. The theme of the meeting is ‘The Cycle of Biomaterials – Back to Our Roots’.

As you are all aware, these are significant times as we are at the crossroads of new understandings at cellular and molecular levels coupled with interesting concepts in scaffolding technologies with the advances in nanotechnology and the ever-present need to drive existing technologies towards clinical translation. In addition, the biomaterials paradigm is ever-changing with new clinical targets and applications. The conference programme is designed to reflect these developments and challenges. 

Specific topics will include recent advances in the use of biomaterials for therapeutics; vascularisation, innervations, and tissue integration; advances in nanotechnology and materials science; host response, and lessons from translational research of the existing paradigms.

The meeting will offer delegates innovative and stimulating topics with a well-balanced programme of plenary speakers, oral presentations, rapid-fire-sessions, poster sessions and educational workshops. In addition, there will be Young Scientist Forum (YSF) activities that will stimulate and engage the next generation of researchers. The social programme will provide an exciting taste of what Ireland has to offer. I also hope that delegates will take the opportunity to discover other parts of Ireland by extending their stay.

We hope to meet you in Ireland!
Enjoy the craic!
