Clemson hosting biomaterials symposium
Date:10/29/2013

As part of the program's 50th anniversary celebrations, Clemson's bioengineering department is hosting leading researchers and industry representatives at the 2013 Clemson Biomaterials Symposium, Biomaterials-What's Next, to share the latest scientific discoveries.

Biomaterials research is an interdisciplinary science, comprising elements of medicine, biology, chemistry and materials science, with deep roots at Clemson University.

Biomaterials-What's Next, which will be Friday and Saturday, offers a unique collaboration opportunity for researchers involved in the multidisciplinary field of biomaterials. This annual symposium provides students, leading researchers and industry representatives an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas to further promote innovation in biomaterials while fostering future collaboration.

The event will highlight undergraduate and graduate research through poster and oral presentations. The two-day symposium also will showcase two industry-leading keynote speakers: Waleed Shalaby, medical director of the Gynecologic Oncology and the Cancer Risk Evaluation Program at the University of Pennsylvania Health System's Chester County Hospital, and Andrs Garcia, Regents' Professor in Georgia Tech's biomedical engineering department.

"A key feature of this year's event is a tribute to Dr. Shalaby W. Shalaby, a former bioengineering faculty and founder of local biomaterials-based business Poly-Med Inc. and his legacy in biomaterials," said Ken Webb, associate professor and associate chairman of Clemson's bioengineering department. "It culminates a series of events this fall recognizing partnerships that support our educational, research and economic development missions and sets the stage for our reunion on February 8, 2014, when 755 bioengineering alumni will be invited to return to the Clemson campus to celebrate our 50th anniversary."

This symposium is endorsed by the Society For Biomaterials, the premier professional society for biomaterials research in the world, which originated from the Clemson biomaterials symposium held annually from the 1960s to the incorporation of the Society in 1974.
