Orthopaedic Biomaterials

Timeslot: Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 10:15am to 12:15pm
Track: Dental/Orthopaedic Biomaterials
Room: Grand Ballroom B


Orthopaedic biomaterials may include all kinds of biomaterials for orthopaedic applications (e.g., bone implant/scaffold, 3D printing, drug delivery) and related biological effects. Such biomaterials may include metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, coatings, biodegradables, etc.
