Scope The interaction of materials and biological systems is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary frontier in materials science and engineering with boundless possibilities. Biological materials science involves the application of materials science and engineering principles to the study of biological materials, including the design, synthesis and fabrication of materials systems from biological lessons. The Symposium on Biological Materials Science emphasizes the primacy of biological materials to the development of biomaterials and biomimetic materials. Biological materials comprise the inorganic and organic constituents of biological systems, whereas biomaterials are synthetic materials developed to replace, restore or augment biological materials. The structure and properties of biological materials exhibit a breadth and complexity unmatched in current biomaterials. Biological materials are formed under ambient conditions by living and adaptive biological systems for multifunctional performance. The structure and properties of biological materials are typically hierarchical, inhomogeneous and anisotropic. Therefore, biological materials exhibit complex structure-property relationships which are only beginning to be elucidated. Biomimetic materials (or bioinspired materials) have unique, tailored structure and properties designed based upon the study of structure-property relationships in biological materials. Biomimetic materials most often utilize creative new methods of synthesis/processing and microstructure design in order to achieve the desired functionality.

The symposium will encompass the following themes:
Biological materials (tissues, cells, etc.)
Biomaterials (implants and devices)
Biomimetic and bio-inspired materials
Bio-enabled materials and systems
Bio-related applications

Proposed Sessions: 7

Session 1: Hard Tissues and Biomaterials (e.g. bone, teeth, mineralized tissues, natural armors)
Session 2: Soft Tissues and Biomaterials (e.g. cartilage, tendon, organs, blood vessel, silks, natural fibers)
Session 3: Bio-inspired and Biomimetic Materials (Joint session with Ultrafine Grained Materials Symposium)
Session 4: Multi-scale Modeling and Experimental Mechanics of Biological Materials
Session 5: Innovative Thin Films and Coatings for Biomedical Applications (Joint session with Biological, electronic and functional thin films and coatings Symposium)
Session 6: Antimicrobial Materials and Surfaces for Biological Interactions (Joint session with Characterization of Minerals, Metals and Materials Symposium)
Session 7: Characterization of Natural and Biological Materials (e.g. AFM, TEM, nanoindentation, optical tweezers, in situ methods) (Joint session with Characterization of Minerals, Metals and Materials Symposium)

In additional, two poster sessions are proposed:
Biological Materials Science Poster Session
Biological Materials Science Student Poster Contest
