Advanced Materials for Biomedical Application - AMBA 2014



To celebrate over 35 years of biomaterial research at Ghent University, the Polymer and Biomaterials Research Group organises a conference on advanced materials for biomedical applications. This conference takes place between November 17th and November 21st and will be preceeded by a winter school (November 16th and 17th) on polymers for biomedical applications.

The conference welcomes contributions from the following research fields:

  • Biomaterial Development and Characterization
    • Polymer chemistry for biomedical applications
    • Nature-inspired materials for tissue engineering approaches
    • Controlled polymerization techniques in the biomedical field
    • Biomedical composites and combination materials
    • Surface functionalization and characterization
  • Biomaterial Processing and Characterization
    • Biomaterial Processing and Characterization
    • Polymer and composite processing into 3D scaffolds
    • Light induced processing of polymers into scaffolds
    • Nano- and microparticle/fiber production and characterization
    • Novel technologies for scaffold characterization
  • Biomaterial Translation: from the Lab to the Clinic and Industry
    • Polymer chemistry for biomedical applications
    • Biobased polymers - from labscale to an industrial setup
    • Industry meets academia: overcoming the final barriers
    • Clinical translation - From bench to bedside
