Scope The symposium on “surface properties of biomaterials” aims to provide an international forum for scientists and engineers to report latest research findings, to exchange ideas and information to establish research related to the recent advances in surface science for ceramic, polymeric and metallic and composite biomaterials.
The importance of this symposium is due to the increasing demand for medical devices for our ageing population whose median age is continually increasing globally. Since cells will always interact with the materials surface first, understanding of surface properties and their utilization are the keys to develop biomedical devices with improved functionality and broader applicability.
This symposium will focus on these general topics:
• Chemistry and grain size effects on biomaterials
• Influence of surface chemistry on drug delivery
• Surface characterization of biomaterials
• In vitro cell-materials interactions
• In vivo tissue-materials interactions
• Resorbable biomaterials in tissue engineering
• Texturing of biomaterials and surface functionalization
• Surface charge and surface energy measurements
• Surfaces to improve antimicrobial properties
• Bioactive coatings
• Wear resistant coatings and surface modifications
