Biomaterials have been a growing field of interest for over half a century, spanning industries as diverse as medicine, biology, chemistry, materials science and through to engineering. Biomaterials can be used for clinical purposes, drug discovery, or to further understand tissue and organ development. Another area of concern is the biomaterial polymers market as there is a need for more research and development into biodegradable and bio-compatible polymers. One of the many fascinating areas, where biomaterials can be applied is in new dental materials and diagnostic tools. Bioengineering, another prominent area of research, not only includes biomaterials but also biomechanics. It has also been gathering momentum with research encompassing the fields of biomechanics of the hand and wrist, gait analysis and orthopaedics.
BioMAAP 2017 offers a great opportunity for both researchers and industry players to come together and gain better knowledge, find new business partners, discover possible synergies or sector crossovers and get clued up on all recent developments in the field of biomaterials.
