|About this Symposium
||Materials Science & Technology 2019
||Next Generation Biomaterials
||Roger Jagdish Narayan, University of North Carolina
||The development of materials for medical applications is a rapidly growing realm in materials science and engineering. Novel processing, characterization, and modeling techniques continue to be developed that will provide enhanced diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
-Scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
-Biomimetic and bioinspired materials
-Surface modification of biomaterials
-Metallic implant materials
-Nanoscale materials for medical diagnosis and treatment
-Novel materials for drug delivery and biosensing
-Shape memory materials
-Additive manufacturing and 3D printing for medical applications
This symposium aims to create collaboration and discussion among the many groups involved in the development and use of biomaterials, including materials researchers, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians.
||Planned: Other (journal publication, etc.; describe below)
