“DEFINITIONS IN BIOMATERIALS” CONFERENCE ATTRACTS WORLD EXPERTS TO CHENGDU, CHINA

“DEFINITIONS IN BIOMATERIALS” CONFERENCE ATTRACTS WORLD EXPERTS TO CHENGDU, CHINA

It has been more than 30 years since the first “Definitions in Biomaterials” consensus conference was held in Chester, UK, in 1986. Over these thirty-two years, new concepts, materials and technologies in the field of biomaterials have emerged while some controversies surfaced concerning some traditional terms in the field. This urged the leaders of the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering (IUSBSE) to organize a global conference to reexamine scientific terms and formulate new definitions. Chaired by Professor Xingdong Zhang of Sichuan University (CAE, NAE, FBSE, FAIMBE), the President of the IUSBSE, the conference will be held on June 11 and 12, 2018 in Chengdu, China. The conference will attract more than 50 world-renowned experts and consist of six subject-specific sessions, including General Biomaterials, Biocompatibility, Implantable and Interventional Devices, Drugs and Genes, Regenerative Medicine, and Emerging Biomaterials and Technologies.
