S24: Nanostructured Bioceramics and Ceramics for Biomedical Applications



Recent advances in nanostructured ceramics for medical and dental applications have resulted from two complementary forces. First, there is a natural movement from the microscale to the nanoscale as novel processing,characterization, and modeling techniques become available. Second, nanostructured ceramics provide exceptional capabilities for specialized interactions with proteins, DNA, viruses, and other biological structures. In addition, novel techniques for processing, characterizing, and modeling ceramic materials are being developed that will facilitate improvements in medical and dental treatment. This symposium will allow for discussion among the many groups involved in the development and use of ceramics for medical and dental applications, including ceramic researchers, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians.


Proposed Symposium Topics

  • Nanostructured bioceramics
  • Dental biomaterials
  • Rapid prototyping of bioceramics
  • Advanced processing of bioceramics
  • In vitro and in vivo characterization of bioceramics
  • Medically-relevant hybrid materials
  • Bioinspired materials and devices
  • Nanostructured biosensors
  • Drug/gene delivery devices
  • Biomedical sensors
  • Diagnostics for medical applications
