Biomaterials Day, Rice University

About Biomaterials Day

Biomaterials Day, funded by the Society for Biomaterials (SFB), is a one day symposium at six different locations throughout the United States.

Biomaterials Day at Rice University will enhance networking between academic, industrial and government sectors and will increase student exposure to exciting biomaterials research. Students throughout the area, SFB members as well as non-SFB members interested in the biomaterials field attend the event. The Rice symposium will include keynote and invited lectures by leading engineers, physicians, and scientists in the field. Oral presentations from both academic and industrial researchers will showcase ongoing research in the region and promote collaboration and knowledge exchange between institutions and industry. Finally, abstracts will be solicited for a poster session that will provide a venue for student research presentations and networking. Awards will be given for best poster.

Travel Grants are available for some undergraduate and graduate attendees traveling from outside Houston. See the Call for Abstracts page for details.
