The theme for the 2015 Annual Meeting is Driving Biomaterial Innovation and the Race to Translation, a nod to the NASCAR-driving rebels that will host this year’s annual meeting. In keeping with that theme, the Program Committee is developing a program which focuses on clinical translation of biomaterial research.
The Society For Biomaterials’ Annual Meeting is the place where industry, academia, and clinicians can gather to discuss the latest trends and developing scientific breakthroughs in the biomaterials field. This unique environment is one in which every exhibitor is regarded as both a valuable contributor to the meeting and an important colleague. The Society For Biomaterials is expected to host 1,400 of the nations leading experts in biomaterials science.
Driving innovation on the cutting edge of biomaterials science requires an extraordinary combination of people from a variety of disciplines. Clinicians, researchers, and students from medical device manufacturers, academic research labs, and operating rooms across the country and around the world will convene in Charlotte to discuss their latest research, form new collaborations, and be inspired by the work of their peers. This interdisciplinary gathering is a critical pathway to identifying issues with current technologies, and for translating academic research to clinical practice. The Society For Biomaterials is expected to host 1,400 of the nations leading experts in biomaterials science.
About The Society For Biomaterials:
The Society For Biomaterials is a professional society which promotes advances in biomedical materials research and development by encouragement of cooperative educational programs, clinical applications, and professional standards in the biomaterials field. Biomaterials scientists and engineers study cells, their components, complex tissues and organs and their interactions with natural and synthetic materials and implanted prosthetic devices, as well as develop and characterize the materials used to measure, restore, and improve physiologic function, and enhance survival and quality of life.
