Piscataway, NJ (PR Web) July 21, 2014 (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

The New Jersey Center for Biomaterials, at Rutgers University.

The goal of the Symposium is to exchange information and ideas across the full spectrum of scientists working in the biomaterials field, by focusing on selected research and development topics that represent the most promising directions for ultimate medical application. Activities have been programmed to:

  •     Provide faculty and government scientists with opportunities for high-level scientific interactions with leading investigators in similar and complementary disciplines; and with commercially oriented biomaterials users
  •     Provide students and postdoctoral associates with opportunities both to learn about the most advanced biomaterials-related research, and to present their own research in a professional forum; and to interact with industrial scientists in furtherance of exploring future career options
  •     Provide industrial scientists with access to leading-edge academic biomaterials researchers, and the opportunity to contribute to defining university-based research directions
  •     Provide clinicians with current information on biomaterials research and product development, and the opportunity to shape R&D programs through clinical input

Registration for the 12th NJ Symposium on Biomaterials Science is available at http://www.njbiomaterials.org/biomaterials-symposia.htm

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.

The Society For Biomaterials is a multidisciplinary society of academic, healthcare, governmental and business professionals in the US, dedicated to promoting advances in all aspects of biomaterial science, education and professional standards.
