Oral presentations will include academic/government/industry experts in chosen in the field. The program will be organized similar to that of a Gordon Conference, with morning and evening sessions, and afternoons devoted to networking.

Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:


1. Advances in Drug Delivery

– Amphiphilic biomaterials, micelles and liposomes

– Nano- and micro-particle carriers

– Membranes and bio-transport

– Delivery of large molecules: Genes and proteins

– Targeting and bio-conjugates

– Polymer-drug compatibility


2.  Surfaces and Biointerfaces

– Cell-material interactions

– Controlling infection and inflammation

– Chemical and physical modifications of surfaces

– Advances in surface analysis


3.  Biomaterials

– Peptides, proteins and proteomics

– Biodegradable polymers and copolymers

– Natural bio-macromolecules

– Silicones and fluoropolymers

– Hydrogels and their nanocomposites

– Biomaterial adhesives


4.  Implants and Implantable Materials

-- Cardiovascular systems

-- Orthopedics and bone

-- Dental materials and applications

-- Advances in ocular systems

-- Nerve regeneration

-- Scaffolds, morphology and architecture


5.  Biomaterials Entrepreneurship session


6.  Special theme session (topic to be decided later)


A poster session for students who cannot present oral talks is expected as well to occur during one (or more) of the evening networking events.
