NEWGEN MP1301 – Second Training School – “Non living materials meet living biology”

Dear NEWGEN partners,

The Training School “Non Living Materials meet living Biology” will take place from Tuesday 9th to Friday 12th May 2017 at Airotel Achaia Beach in Patras, Greece. It will be organised in the framework of the COST action MP1301 NEWGEN and with the support of the JECS Trust.

Topics such as Bone structure and properties, cell biology, bone physiology; Biocompatibility; Biointerphase; Processing of materials and final surface characteristics; Scaffold design, processing, biodegradation/resorption; Mechanobiology; Bone Tissue Engineering; In vivo experimental procedures and Surgical aspects  will be discussed.

The school will propose lectures given by internationally recognized experts and a Poster Contest will be organized: all students are encouraged to participate by presenting a poster of their research/thesis.

Limited to 50 students!
COST MP1301 NEWGEN will reimburse a fix grant of 300 € to 40 participants,
members of the project.

Bioceramics 29 – Toulouse (FR) – October 25-27, 2017

29th Symposium and Annual meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medecine

October 25-27, 2017 in Toulouse (France)

http://inpact.inp-toulouse.fr/BIOCERAMICS29/homepage.html

The International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (ISCM) invites you to attend Bioceramics 29, the 29th Symposium and Annual Meeting of ISCM, from October 25th to 27th, 2017.

This edition of Bioceramics will be held in the historically-rich city of Toulouse, the largest city in southern France and appealing by its historical background but also exceptional scenic location, centrally located between the Mediterranean sea, Atlantic ocean and Pyrenees mountains. It can be easily accessed by plane from any major European city and is well connected to the train and highway networks. In the middle of an agricultural area, the development of Toulouse is strongly linked to airplane and space industries, which have driven the creation of several high level schools and have conferred to the city some intellectual and cultural attractiveness (Toulouse is the place of two Nobel prizes in chemistry and economics). Regarding bioceramics and bone implants, several companies are installed in the Toulouse area which benefits of an extended local industrial network as well as top-level hospitals and clinics.

Bioceramics 29 will be an opportunity for researchers, clinicians, industrials and students to share and learn about the exciting domain of ceramics for medical applications.
This 29th edition will provide an open forum in the field of bioceramics and related biomaterials and their medical applications. Some of the main objectives of Bioceramics 29 will be:

  • to expose recent advances made in the fields of synthesis, characterization, processing and evaluation of bioceramic-based systems, including from a clinical point of view,
  • to identify the remaining barriers for clinical progresses,
  • to discuss regulation aspects,
  • to develop novel strategies based on bioceramics in the fields of regenerative medicine, drug delivery, cell therapy, medical diagnosis, …
