2014 NJ Symposium on Biomaterials Science

The year 2014 marks the 12th edition of the New Jersey Symposium on Biomaterials Science. This year’s event will address the universe of biomaterials from synthetic polymers to processed natural tissues, and their development into new medical products. This biannual event held in New Brunswick, NJ is regarded as the premier regional meeting on Biomaterials Science. It has gained global recognition for its broad scope, stimulating themes, and interdisciplinary attendance. The goal of the Symposium series is to exchange information and ideas across the full spectrum of scientists who are working in the biomaterials field, by focusing on research and development topics that represent the most current and promising directions for ultimate translation to medical applications. Renowned researchers from academia, industry, government and the clinical arena present their research and findings in focused and topical sessions. Detailed information about the symposium will be found at

The New Jersey Center for Biomaterials (NJCBM) was founded in 1997. Based at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, the center spans academia, industry and government. Staffed by biomaterial scientists, the Center works toward the goal to improve health care and quality of life by developing advanced biomedical products for tissue repair and replacement as well as the delivery of pharmaceutical agents. The Center’s technologies have been translated into clinical and pre-clinical products including surgical meshes, cardiovascular stents, bone regeneration scaffolds, and ocular drug delivery systems.
