3rd Symposium on Biomaterials as part of 27th ICMT, Portorož, 16.-18.10.2019
October 16 @ 08:00 - October 18 @ 17:00
The Institute of Metals and Technology, together with National Institute of Chemistry, Ljubljana and the Jožef Štefan Institute, organises 27th International Conference on Materials and Technologies (ICMT) at Portorož on Slovenian Adriatic coast. The conference will be held at the Conference Centre of Grand Hotel Bernardin from 16 to 18 October 2019. In the frame of the conference the 3rd Symposium on Biomaterials is organised.
In 2017 at the 25th ICMT a session on Biomaterials was introduced the for the first time and continued even more successfully in 2018 . Both events were very successful and beside the material scientists the best orthopedists from Ljubljana Orthopaedic Clinic of University Medical center, MD Medicina, and Faculty of Medicine attended with their lectures.
The research group of Prof. Dr. Drago Dolinar MD from Orthopaedic Clinic, University Medical Centre (UKC) Ljubljana and the Institute of Metals and Technology Ljubljana (IMT), have a very intensive cooperation on the subject of biomaterials (metallic, ceramics and polymeric materials). We are investigating the premature failures of implants retrieved from revision surgeries. The aim of our research is to evaluate failure of martial or its in-growth in body and to optimise the implants surface as well as to optimise surgery methods to improve the longevity of implants.
The topics of the Biomaterials session are: Advanced biomaterials, Biomaterials for biological engineering, Biomaterials and Nanotechnology, Polymer biomaterials, UHMWPE for medical applications, Ceramic biomaterials, Dental Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Advances in Orthopaedic surgery, 3D printing of biomaterials, Biodegradable biomaterials, Biomaterials Industry and Market analysis.
