This is the fourth in a series of biomaterial meetings organized by The American Ceramic Society that emphasizes collaboration between R&D, medical practitioners, and biomedical materials manufacturers and marketers to better develop emerging technologies into marketable products. Cutting-edge research and product developments related to novel materials for orthopedic, dental, oral, and maxillofacial applications; advanced manufacturing technologies including 3-D printing; nanomedicine; multifunctional biomaterials; point-of-care sensors and diagnostic devices; and more will be featured. In addition, a symposium on “Glasses for Healthcare Applications” to honor Delbert E. Day is planned.
This robust technical program will provide a forum for scientists, engineers, medical professionals, and industrial researchers to discuss recent advances in the fields of biomaterials, biomanufacturing, and biotechnologies. Bio-4 is co-organized by ACerS Bioceramics Division and is endorsed by the Society for Biomaterials and the Biomedical Engineering Society.
