2011 Annual Meeting



Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society for Biomaterials.
Y-Parc Technology Campus, Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland, May 4 2011


Introduction

SSB meetings are broad in scope. Topics include all aspects of materials for surgical and medical use and their interactions with cells and tissues. Studies of tissues as materials, including their mechanical properties, are also of interest. Papers can describe research, development, lab evaluation, or results of animal and clinical studies based on biomaterials, including characterization of retrieved specimens.

Our annual meetings are open to everyone interested in biomaterials science and engineering. Attendees typically include engineers, scientists, graduate students, physicians/surgeons/dentists in practice or still in training, and everyone from industries dealing with biomaterials. Students are especially encouraged to attend and to submit both podium presentations and posters.

 

2011 Meeting Theme & Structure

The 2011 topic and focus of the morning session was Applications of Biomaterials in Dental and Musculoskeletal Devices. The theme-related topics include:

  • Biomaterials for dental or musculoskeletal applications: novel approaches, concepts, and limitations
  • Characterization of biomaterials and medical devices for dental or musculoskeletal applications
  • Clinical applications of biomaterials in dentistry, maxillofacial, orthopedic and spine surgery
