The Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials is proud to present its 9th annual meeting. The meeting will be held on the 1st to 3rd of June 2016 at the Reykjavik University in Reykjavik, Iceland. The aim of this meeting is to bring together experts in the field of biomaterials, tissue engineering and systems biology to further the use of biomaterials in tissue engineering and cellular therapy. The main purpose is to promote cross-fertilization of Biomaterials research in Scandinavia, Iceland and the Baltic states, extending beyond the borders to the international community.
Biomaterials are very important when designing tissue engineering models, whether they are to be used for clinical purposes, drug discovery, to further the understanding of tissue and organ development. Massive amount of data can be created from these models and therefore there is a dire need to be able to interpret those data and model them using e.g. systems biology as a tool. Researchers, Industry and clinicians will have chance to meet and discuss among other question: How can biomaterials be used to create tissue engineering models? And what strategies can we impose?
Number of participants will be limited to 120 persons
Topics will include:
•3D printing of organs and tissue
•Organs on a chip
•Biomaterial design for tissue engineering
•Systems biology approach in tissue engineering and organ building
