Biomaterials, natural or synthetic materials that interact with biological systems to repair or treat natural body tissues, are designed with the most complex performance requirements and the strictest regulations. These challenges, and the opportunities offered by a worldwide market estimated to be worth 130.57 Billion USD by 2020, drive innovation at industrial, academic and government laboratories around the world. The 9th Annual TechConnect World Biomaterials Symposium will highlight some of the most exciting research and development, and focus on industrially relevant new materials for cardiovascular and orthopedic applications, tissue engineering, neurology, and wound healing. Please submit an abstract and share your research innovation at this dynamic event.
