Symposium Kick Off BioTUNE

Kick-off Meeting Bio-TUNE

Barcelona, Spain. 17-18th February, 2020.

Organizers: Dr. Carles Mas-Moruno and Noelia Aparicio (UPC)

Kick-Off Bio-TUNE

Materials Science and Engineering Conference 

Darmstadt, Germany. 22-25th September, 2020

*Due to COVID crisis, the Conference was held ONLINE*

Topic: Biomaterials

Symposium: B05: Cell-instructive materials and surfaces

The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers from leading groups around the world working in the development of cell instructive and antibacterial surfaces from different perspectives. Particular emphasis will be put on understanding the interaction of eukaryotic cells with bacteria at the biophysical and biomolecular level as well as on developing multifunctional surfaces via biochemical and topographical approaches.

Symposium Organizers: Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra (UPC), Dr. Carles Mas-Moruno (UPC) and Prof. Dr. Bo Su (University of Bristol)

MSE Conference

11th World Biomaterials Congress  

Glasgoy, UK. 11-15th December, 2020

*Due to COVID crisis, the Conference was held ONLINE*

Workshop: Fine Tune of Cellular Behavior: From Fundamental Research to the Clinics.

Theme: This workshop brings together leading experts in diverse areas of biomaterials science. It will cover from basic fundamentals in cell adhesion and growth factor signaling (Cavalcanti-Adam) to applications of biomaterials for stem cell engineering (Salmerón-Sánchez) and fighting bacterial infections (Garcia). Finally, it will provide a surgeons perspective on the use of biomaterials in clinical settings (Hart).
