Functional Polymers at Bio-material Interfaces

Event dates: 
Sunday, June 28, 2015 to Thursday, July 2, 2015

The understanding of events occurring at interfaces between the material surface and the environment of living tissues is crucial for the rational design of new biomaterials for tissue engineering or tissue regeneration, for development of advanced biomedical implants as well as biosensors. The cues influencing the protein adsorption, cell adhesion, proliferation and differentiation in contact with a biomaterial are based on solid-phase signals that are realized through surface-immobilized biomimetic structures and their interactions with cytoskeleton-bound cell receptors.

The symposium will focus on the most recent achievements in material design and surface engineering approaches.
