This international workshop will gather researchers from multidisciplinary domains on the use of advanced materials in distinct biomedical fields, including diagnosis/imaging, medical devices, nanobiomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, drug delivery or bioengineering applications.
The scientific program of this event will consist on invited lectures to be delivered by internationally world-distinguished scientists in their research domains. We invite all other attendees to present their works as posters. The participants will have the opportunity to enjoy the pleasant and amazing atmosphere of Reykjavik and Iceland, and to exchange ideas, experiences and networking with their peers.
We cordially invite you to attend this stimulating advanced workshop and we hope to see you soon in Iceland!
