SYMPOSIUM 5: Next Generation Bioceramics and Biocomposites



Novel bioceramic materials are being developed that will provide improvements in diagnosis and treatment of medical and dental conditions. In addition, the development and use of nanostructured materials, bio-inspired materials, biomimetic materials, and inorganic-organic structures has generated considerable scientific interest. This symposium will allow for discussion among the many groups involved in the development and use of bioceramics, including ceramic researchers, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Porous bioceramics (joint with Symposium 9)
  • Advanced processing of bioceramics
  • Bio-synthetic interfaces
  • Biomineralization and tissue-material interactions
  • Bioactive and resorbable ceramics
  • Bio-inspired and biomimetic ceramics
  • Self-assembled bioceramics
  • Ceramics for drug and gene delivery
  • Antibacterial surfaces
  • In vitro and In vivo characterization of bioceramics
  • Mechanical properties of bioceramics
  • Medical and dental applications of bioceramics
