The symposium will highlight the key contributions of chemical strategies for the modification of natural and biomimetic biomaterials, as well as advanced processing technologies/methodologies towards the development of next-generation multifunctional devices to be used in the biomedical and healthcare arena. The scientific program will comprise a series of plenary lectures to be delivered by internationally renowned scientists, well-known for their expertise and experience in chemistry, materials science and engineering, biomaterials science, marine biotechnology, biomedical engineering, bioengineering, biology, and/or advanced therapies (such as tissue engineering), which will provide an authoritative and comprehensive overview on the latest developments in the relevant fields related with the topics of the event. Besides, we also intend to offer to the participants a pleasant atmosphere in the beautiful city of Aveiro with the opportunity for the young researchers, including young investigators, post-docs and students, to interact closely with renowned experts and foster the exchange of ideas, experiences and networking with their peers.
Do not miss this unique opportunity to learn from world-renowned scientists, present your work and research findings, and network with your peers!
We look forward to seeing you in Aveiro, Portugal, in November 2017!
