ScSB holds an intimate annual conference each year in the Nordic & Baltic region, at which researchers and partners from industry gather to share their latest findings and innovations regarding biomaterials.
Our all-inclusive conferences include keynote presentations by renowned researchers with diverse expertise. They have a highly sociable atmosphere and are typically held in locations far enough from city centres to enable us to infuse the intensive scientific programme with enjoyable outdoor activities and relaxation.
This year’s theme is centred on the wide range of biomaterial applications, right through from their use for studying fundamental cellular behaviours such as mechanotransduction, through to their clinical applications in regenerative therapies. Six out of seven keynote speakers have already been confirmed:
Prof. David Mooney, Harvard University & Wyss Institute
Prof. Kristi Anseth, University of Colorado Boulder
Prof. Jonathan Knowles, UCL Eastman Dental Institute
Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra, Polytechnic University of Catalonia
Prof. Håkan Engqvist, Uppsala University
Prof. Heli Skottman, Tampere University
Prof. Markus Linder, Aalto University
We hope that by covering a broad range of biomaterial topics, including material chemistry, synthesis, engineering, functionalisation and characterisation, as well as exploring their biological interactions and applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, our programme will draw interest from researchers in diverse fields relating to biomaterials research and development.
Another important aspect of the conference is the inclusion of industrial partners, not only through an exhibition, but also as integral contributors to our programme. This conference is sponsored by Aspect Biosystems Ltd. (Gold Sponsor), CELLINK (Gold Sponsor), Institut Laue Langevin (Gold Sponsor), Seqvera (Gold Sponsor) and MDPI Applied Sciences (Rapid-Fire Poster Competition Sponsor), JPK BioAFM, Brüker Nano GmbH (Silver Sponsor) and Scaffdex Oy (Silver Sponsor), InoCure s.r.o. (Silver Sponsor) and endorsed by Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) and TERMIS-EU Business Plan Competition & Pre-Accelerator Programme.
