Welcome

Scope of the Meeting
The SSB meetings are devoted to all aspects of biomaterials such as designing, preparation, characterisation, quality control and application. Emphasis is not only placed on the basic research but also on engineering. The meetings are open to all who have interest in scientific, technology and medical aspects of biomaterials and are primarily intended for graduate students, scientists, medical doctors, dentists and engineers involved in metal, ceramic, polymer or other biomaterials.
2006 Theme: In 2006 we oriented the meeting theme towards all aspects of absorbables, degradables, and resorbables. This included synthesis, characterization, in vitro and in vivo properties.

Swiss Society for Biomaterials (SSB)
