What will be the future biomaterials implanted in humans?

TRIBUTE to Pr Charles Baquey

With Keynote lecture by Prof. Luigi Ambrosio in homage to Pr Charles Baquey – a great biomaterials scientist and friend of the ESB society, passed away at the end of December 2020.

Title Keynote:
Nano-biocomposites: from tissue repair/regeneration to therapeutic behaviors

Learning Objectives:
Define the role of the new biotechnologies (nanotechnologies, biofabrication…) and the role of biocomposite matrices that could help in the development of the future biomaterials designed for clinical applications.

Proposed Program:
The symposium will present the relevant strategies for the development and the design of the future tissue engineered products according to the clinical requirements
