IoN and CERAM team up for exciting two-day workshop on Nanoscale Bioceramics in Healthcare and High Performance Ceramics
(Nanowerk News) The Institute of Nanotechnology and CERAM, the leading materials testing, analysis and consultancy organisation, have teamed up to present a two-day Workshop on the application of bioactive glass and ceramics at the nanoscale to healthcare and high-tech industries.
The use of novel nanoceramics is rapidly growing in a variety of healthcare and medical applications such as orthopaedics, regenerative medicine, dentistry, biosensing, controlled drug release, high performance coatings and functionalised biomaterials, due to their excellent properties and biocompatibility. High performance, functional and sensor ceramics are also finding use in the electronics and associated industries.
The Workshop, which will run over two days on 12th and 13th October 2011, will feature presentations from leading international experts in the field and will take place at CERAM's headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, which is easily reached by road or public transport. On the first day an optional tour of CERAM's extensive analytical facilities, including the Surface Science and Medical Materials laboratories, will be available.
