The Society For Biomaterials is excited to host its 2019 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Seattle, Washington, April 2-6, 2019!

The 2019 Program Committee is requesting input from all SFB members about sessions they would like to see at the 2019 Annual Meeting.  If you have any ideas, suggestions, or considerations for the SFB 2019 Annual Meeting, please submit an “idea sheet” for consideration by June 15, 2018.

This year, the Committee is especially interested in sessions that are pertinent to our industry members and sessions that will explore the very latest new and emerging field of biomaterials research in the many disciplines that participate in the SFB Annual Meeting.  The program committee is especially interested in ideas that involve breakthroughs in biomaterials science, translation of basic research to clinical application, next generation medical devices, and content that explores regulatory issues and commercial realities.  Special Interest Groups are encouraged to submit ideas jointly with other SIGs or with industry partners in order to create the most stimulating and interesting sessions for all attendees.

Clinicians, researchers, and students from medical device manufacturers, academic research labs, and operating rooms across the country and around the world belong to SFB. This interdisciplinary gathering is a critical pathway to identifying issues with current technologies, and for translating academic research to clinical practice.

The Society For Biomaterials enjoys a diverse membership from industry, academics, and regulatory agencies, with interdisciplinary specialties ranging from tissue engineering and nanotechnology to orthopedic polymers, dental implants, and drug delivery mechanisms. See what our members have to say about SFB.

Active members receive a subscription to the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research (and Applied Biomaterials) and the Biomaterials Forum, full access to the website (searchable directory, SIG community), and discounts on meeting registration, textbooks, and more!
