Share Article

The NJ Symposium on Biomaterials Science Planning Committee has created an expanded and robust agenda for the NJ Center for Biomaterials’ 12th New Jersey Symposium - Bioactive Scaffolds: From Synthetic Polymers to ECM and Decellularized Tissues, scheduled for October 6-7, 2014 at the Heldrich Hotel, New Brunswick, NJ.

Biennially, for the past twenty-four years, the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials hosts the region’s most prestigious biomaterials event, The New Jersey Symposium on Biomaterials Science. This year will mark the twelfth time that the symposium has convened. Since its inception, the event has grown in size and prestige to achieve an international reputation. In recognition of the importance of the event, the Planning Committee for the NJ Symposium on Biomaterials Science has put together an outstanding array of speakers to address the participants at the upcoming event in October. Following the Symposium’s theme: Bioactive Scaffolds: From Synthetic Polymers to ECM and Decellularized Tissues, more than thirty distinguished scholars and scientists from institutions across the US and Europe will come together to discuss topics ranging from pure research to clinical trials to translation of biomaterials applications. These renowned researchers from academia, industry, government and the clinical arena will focus on topical sessions. Because of this level of focus and detail, attendees are assured of finding value in the Symposium.

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. Through their focus on research and development topics that represent the most novel and promising directions to ultimately permit medical applications, science can translate what is learned in the laboratory to help those individuals who have suffered wounds and severe trauma to regain their lives.

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 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.
