The 2016 Symposium on Biomaterials Science
Chair: Joachim Kohn, PhD, FBSE

Marriott Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, Iselin, NJ            
Mon-Tue October 24-25, 2016

Join this unique conference for scientists, engineers, and clinicians, exploring today’s challenges and innovations in biomaterials science. We are now accepting abstracts for presentations and posters describing significant research in the design and optimization of innovative biomaterials and their applications in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, control of stem cell functions, drug delivery, and the biomanufacturing of cells and tissues for clinical use. Plenary talks by leading experts will frame sessions featuring talks and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

Abstracts will be accepted through September 30, 2016. We will provide a final round of selection notifications by October 10th, 2016. While all biomaterials-related topics are welcome, abstracts relating to one of the featured sessions will be given preference in the selection process. (please indicate your Featured Session preference if applicable):

Featured Sessions:

Innovations in the design, synthesis and optimization of:
- Polymeric biomaterials
- Ceramic biomaterials
- Nanostructured biomaterials and nanomedicine

Cutting-edge research in:
- Stimulus-responsive biomaterials and their applications
- Fabrication, characterization, and property control of biomaterials
- Biomaterials for regenerative medicine including regeneration of soft and hard tissues, peripheral nerves, and skin

Additional topics include:

Clinical challenges in the use of biomaterials for regenerative medicine and drug delivery

Regulatory Challenges for new biomaterial compositions and combination devices

Biomanufacturing of cells and tissues with a focus on the design of biomaterials that can control cell fate and cell response and the computational modeling of biomaterials‐induced cellular responses
