S5: Next Generation Bioceramics and Biocomposites


Preliminary Program – Symposium 5

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, bioinspired 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 bioceramicsĀ and biocomposites, including ceramic researchers, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Advanced processing of bioceramics
  • Biomineralization and tissue-material interactions
  • Bioactive and resorbable ceramics
  • Bioinspired and biomimetic ceramics
  • Self-assembled bioceramics
  • Ceramics for drug and gene delivery
  • In vitro and in vivo characterization of bioceramics
  • Inorganic-organic composite structures
  • Mechanical properties of bioceramics
  • Medical and dental applications of bioceramics
  • Nanostructured bioceramics (joint with Symposium 7)
  • Porous bioceramics (joint with Symposium 9)
  • Ceramic biosensors
