Second International Conference on New Biomedical Materials
5–8 April 2003, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom
This conference will bring together scientists who have contributed numerous innovative and exciting advances in the field of biomedical materials. Diverse topics will be covered including studies of cell interactions with biomaterials. The assessment of the potential applications for the development of new biomaterials, tissue engineering, and future medical devices and biosensors will be discussed. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in the field and the vision for the future. By linking basic and applied research together this conference is aimed at the stimulation of activity and research on biomedical materials. The interdisciplinary nature of the conference will encourage scientific interchange and cross-fertilization of ideas.
Topics to be covered include:
1 The Need: orthopaedic applications; cardiovascular applications; haemocompatible materials; extracorporeal systems; artificial organs, wound dressings; drug delivery, dental and oral healthcare, and biosensors
2 Basic Research Studies: cell interactions with surfaces, such as bones, polymers; cells involved in wound healing cell movement; cell interactions with other cells; molecular recognition, peptide mimicry; drug delivery, surface plasmon resonance studies; atomic force microscopy; and vibrational spectroscopy
3 Applied Research Studies: bone research; cement; hip replacements; hearing aids; cardiovascular; wound dressings, new smart materials, artificial organs, and biosensors
