'Beneath the Surface', a monthly science webinar series on the tissue-biomaterial interface
(Nanowerk News) The Surfaces in Biomaterials Foundation announced today a novel webinar series held monthly to bring together experts in biomaterials, implanted devices, biologicals, tissue engineering, and pathology to share new technologies and approaches to applied biological surface science. Webinars are free to members and the general public, and will last approximately one hour, with audience discussion after a university style lecture on a topic of interest to biosurfaces.
"This is an exciting approach to generating an ongoing dialog between members in the area of biosurfaces," said Dr. Lawrance Salvati, President of the Society. "It will allow discussion of topics throughout the year and expose members to new technologies and techniques in the biomaterials area, without the time and cost of meeting in person."
The first Beneath the Surface seminar will be held on January 27th at 1:00 p.m. EST. The speaker will be Dr. Steven Potts, CEO of Flagship Biosciences, a medical device CRO: "New imaging approaches for quantitative analysis of the tissue-biomaterial interface."
The February speaker will be Dr. Melissa M. Reynolds, Boettcher Investigator and Assistant Professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Colorado State University, speaking on, "Synthetic materials that maintain homeostasis."
The March speaker will be Dr. Robert Kellar, President of Development Engineering Sciences and Faculty at Northern Arizona University, speaking on "Cardiac repair using regenerative medicine."
