Orthopaedic Biomaterials SIG 2

Timeslot: Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Track: Musculoskeletal and Craniofacial Biomaterials
Room: Virtual


The Orthopaedic Biomaterials Special Interest Group is focusing on new technologies and materials advances in orthopaedic surgery. The three immediate goals of this emerging Special Interest Group are: 1) solicitation of new members for the Special Interest Group from current Society membership and from non-members actively engaged in research and development of improved materials for orthopaedics, 2) identification of key issues in orthopaedic materials that should be addressed within the Society, and 3) cooperation between Special Interest Group membership and the chairman of the Program Committee for the Annual Meeting to assist in the coordination of the scientific program
