Focus on Biomaterials

9 December 2020 1pm – 2.30pm
Webinar

 

You are invited to join us for our series of monthly virtual events when we will focus on biomaterials. This event is jointly organised with the Biomedical Applications Division and will explore a number of natural and bio-inspired materials and their applications as biomaterials in medicine.

You will hear from:

  • Ipsita Roy, Department of Materials Science and Engineer, The University of Sheffield, on natural polymers as biomaterials
  • Adam Celiz, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, on alginate adhesives to replace surgical stitches
  • Cheryl Miller, School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield, on bio-inspired biomaterials
  • Andrew Spragg, Founder, CSO & Executive Director, Jellagen, on Jellagen

 The interactive seminar will also provide the opportunity for Question and Answers and we often hang around at the end for a fun and engaging panel session.

What is the NMA?

The Natural Materials Association (NMA) is the first UK body to represent the breadth of natural materials and its primary objective is to raise awareness of innovative uses of natural materials, develop a knowledge exchange between materials scientists, product designers and those in industry and education. If you are interested, want to learn about natural materials and get to know some NMA members, why not register for the event?  

What is the BMAD?

The Biomedical Applications Divsion aims to represent all materials engineers and other related technical disciplines with interests across the multidisciplinary field of biomedical applications. If you are interested, want to learn about natural materials and biomaterials and get to know some NMA and BMAD members, why not register for the event?
