Hosted by the European Society of Biomaterials (ESB), the special session entitled ‘Science for Industry: Bioresorbable Materials for Medical Applications’ was organised by the ReBioStent consortium, of which Professor Ipsita Roy is the Scientific Coordinator.
The symposium focused on Innovating in the Medical Device Industry-Challenges and Opportunities. Professor Roy’s plenary talk was hugely appreciated by the audience which included biomedical scientists and engineers, medical device manufacturers, academics, entrepreneurs and promoters of biomaterial technologies for medical applications.
The conference sessions which took place in Krakow, Poland focussed on novel and commercially applicable research and product development work on bioresorbable materials and medical devices. Topics of discussion included biomaterials for regenerative medicine, nanotechnology, stem cells application, and smart systems for various therapies.
The European Society of Biomaterials has approximately 750 members from 33 different countries worldwide.
Research in the Faculty of Science and Technology encompasses a wide range of disciplines from pure to applied science, integrating areas from structural biology, molecular genetics, tissue engineering, biomaterials, applied microbiology and biotechnology through to human performance, Chinese medicine, public health nutrition and well-being.
