Southeast Biomaterials Day 2016

The Georgia Institute of Technology, with Clemson University, will host the Southeast Biomaterials Day on Friday, October 14, 2016. This all-day research conference organized by Georgia Tech’s Student Chapter of the Society for Biomaterials is designed to build regional biomaterials  networking opportunities by inviting attendees from surrounding schools, industry, and government.

The meeting format will include plenary talks from guest lecturers, faculty talks from invited speakers, student talks, an industry panel discussion, and a student poster session and competition, and will conclude with a networking reception.

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Abstract Submission Process is Now Open – Deadline August 31 (National SFB submissions deadline September 5)!

Our 2014 Biomaterials day was a huge success with attendees from Georgia Tech and 9 other universities including an especially large showing from our co-hosts for the Southeast Biomaterials Day, Clemson University. This is a great opportunity to share cutting-edge biomaterials research with future collaborators, and our last event sold out early with over 150 scientists and trainees in attendance from academia, government, and industry. We expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better, so register soon!
