Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials
Welcome to Biomaterials go NANO !
We proudly welcome you to the 4th Annual meeting of the Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials, being held on May 4-6, 2011 in an old fishing village in Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast. This year’s program puts the spotlight on nanoscience and technology in biomaterials research and development. With plenary lectures from distinguished researchers, invited and contributed oral talks, poster sessions and corporate displays, we aim to gather the latest biomaterials research in this area from both Scandinavia and the rest of the world. The schedule allows for networking, social and relaxing activities. The venue is located directly at the sea on the island of Skaftö, with their famous “havsbad” (sea spa) waiting to be experienced.
We would like to thank our corporate partners and all of the participants for your contribution to this year’s meeting. We wish you fruitful discussions, new contacts and a stimulating few days on the Swedish west coast.
