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, …

The participation of students will be strongly encouraged in the whole course of the conference. Also, participants will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition of companies directly established in the bioceramics field.

Conference Scope
Besides plenary and keynote presentations from leading international experts, the 3-day Bioceramics 29 conference will consist in oral and poster presentations within thematic sessions on topics such as:
-calcium phosphate bioceramics
-bioactive glasses
-bio-inert ceramics
-tissue engineering
-drug delivery
-surface engineering and functionnalization
-medical diagnosis
-processing routes : 3D manufacturing, coatings, bio-inspired methods, templating…
-biological properties
-cells/materials and tissue/materials interactions
-advances and perspectives in clinical trials
