Continuing Medical Education Conferences in UK
Aug 16 - 18, 2018 | Free | Biotechnology
International Conference on Biomaterials is organized by Scientific Future Group and will be held from Aug 16 - 18, 2018 at Holiday Inn London - Brentford Lock, London, England, United Kingdom. Course Description: Biomaterials Conference 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. Biomaterials science have benefited from the advances in multidisciplinary approach of medical, engineering and physical sciences. 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 biocompatible 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 orthopedics. However, the interaction of cells and biomaterial surfaces is of fundamental relevance that significantly contributes to the clinical success of implants. It is reported that orthopedic, musculoskeletal and spine segment will grow significantly in the worldwide medical devices market. Other important segments are products related to dental, cardiology & vascular, skin and cancer treatments. It is expected that the innovative biomaterials market reach US$139 billion globally by year 2022 growing at a CAGR of 11.8%. The latest market research claims an "increasing usage of implantable products and growing awareness of biomaterials application in emerging economies fuels the growth of the biomaterials market". Innovative biomaterials-based technologies for diverse applications are expected to significantly benefit the end user i.e. the Society.
