This year’s program will focus on research that has direct patient impact and many of the challenges facing new materials in garnering regulatory approval for clinical use. It will also include discussions on many of the issues facing the biomaterials community including COVID related adjustments to education, and creating a more equitable environment in the biomaterials community and the STEM fields in general. We hope to realize the vision for this meeting: Biomaterials Research: Hitting all the right notes, and avoiding the translational blues.
More opportunities to present!
With the shift to a virtual meeting platform, we are pleased to announce that all authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the meeting will be given an opportunity to make a more complete presentation of their work. Those accepted for feature presentation during a session will be afforded 10-12 minutes, and those accepted for "Rapid Fire" presentation will be invited to make a 3-5 minute presentation. All presentations will be recorded and there will be live Q&A sessions for each session, and each Rapid Fire Category.
