23rd Biomedical Science and Technology Symposium (BIOMED2018-TR), organized by Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Association, was hosted by Acıbadem University on 15-16 December 2018 in collaboration with Acıbadem University and ODTÜ Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Center of Excellence (BIOMATEN).
BIOMED-TR is a national conference and this year’s theme was “Biomaterials, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine”. The aim of the symposium was creating a space to discuss current events, advanced research around the world, problems encountered during the translation of laboratory work to the clinic, new approaches, and clinical application. Another aim of the conference was to connect scientists working in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering fields with officials fro medical device industry and doctors.
Biomaterials, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine was discussed in the symposium. Experts and researchers gave talks on 3D Printing and Clinical Applications, Biomedical Applications, Cell Therapies and Diagnostic Systems, Drug-Release Systems, Tissue Engineering and Models, Cell-Materials Interactions, Biomaterials. Concurrently, poster presentations took place in this 2-day meeting.
In the last session of the second day, speakers from the private sector and academia joined the panel “Biomaterials, Biomedical and Health: Education, Manufacturing, and Translation”.
Topics of the 2-day symposium:
3D Printing and Clinical Applications
Cell Therapies and Diagnostic Systems
Tissue Engineering and Models
Panel: Biomaterials, Biomedical and Health: Education, Manufacturing, and Translation
