Ceramic and Glass Materials for Implants, Medical Devices and Tissue Engineering
July 29-31, 2016, Hyatt Rosemont, Chicago, Ill.
The Innovations in Biomedical Materials 2016 meeting, which will take place on July 29-31 at the Hyatt Rosemont (Chicago area), is the third in a series of biomaterial meetings organized by The American Ceramic Society. The meeting will emphasize collaboration between R&D, medical practitioners, and biomedical materials manufacturers/marketers to better develop emerging technologies into marketable products. Cutting-edge research and product developments related to novel materials for orthopedic, dental, and maxillofacial applications; advanced manufacturing technologies; power sources, energy harvesting, power transmission and telemetry; as well as implantable and wearable sensors will be featured.
The meeting will highlight five keynote speakers immediately followed by an expert panel session where the audience can interact with renowned experts in the biomedical field. In addition, a robust technical program consisting of five tracks will provide a forum for scientists, engineers, medical professionals, and industrial researchers to discuss recent advances in the field of biomedical materials is planned. This meeting is endorsed by the European Ceramic Society and the Society for Biomaterials. The Orthopedic Application (Track 1) is supported by the Orthopaedic Research Society.
