Symposium P

New frontiers on biomaterials for bone regeneration

Scope of the Symposium

The worldwide incidence of bone disorders has increased in last years and it is expected to remain raising in the future, particularly in aging populations. Through the adequate combination of biomaterials, cells and growth factors, new therapies aimed at enhancing bone repair and regeneration are being developed.
The focus of this symposium is on advanced biomaterials for bone regeneration, including biomimetic materials or emerging metallic alloys, ceramics, natural and synthetic polymers, composites, and adhesives, as well as their interactions with proteins, blood, cells and mineral tissues.
By gathering together clinicians, biologists, materials researchers, engineers and industrials, this symposium will highlight the most recent advances on biomaterials for bone regeneration.
This Symposium is endorsed by "Biomaterials Science" a publication of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas

  • Synthesis and characterization of novel biomaterials for bone regeneration;
  • Bio-imaging in bone regeneration
  • Biomimetic approaches for the development of new biomaterials
  • Smart and responsive materials for bone regeneration
  • Interface between biomaterials and living cells and tissues
  • Biomaterials-protein interactions
  • Mechanical behavior of bone regenerating biomaterials
  • Degradation of biomaterials
  • Clinical evaluation of new biomaterials for bone regeneration
  • Tissue engineering for bone regeneration
