Dear colleagues, we are delighted to invite you to SIB2021!

This year, the annual conference on biomaterials of the Società Italiana dei Biomateriali will take place in Lecce at the Sede del Rettorato of University of Salento.

The conference is jointly organized by the Department of Engineering for Innovation of the University of Salento and the Institute of Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials of the National Research Council (IPCB-CNR).

The overall aim of the annual conference is to provide a forum for scientists, clinicians, industry members to meet, promote and share ideas on cutting-edge research, and novel innovation strategy on biomaterials and their applications. In this context, young scientists are strongly invited to participate. They will have the opportunity to share their research results to a wide public of experts in an unique interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary environment: from chemistry, engineering, biology, material science, translation to clinical practice and industrialization. Indeed, networking, dissemination and the open curiosity are the driving force of the conference as represented by the SIB2021 logo: Six degrees of separation theory.

The main topics of the conference are:

  • Drug delivery;
  • Therapeutic biomaterials & nanocarrier systems;
  • Biomaterials for hard and soft tissue repair/regeneration;
  • Cell-material interactions;
  • Scaffold-based tissue engineering;
  • Tissue and organ models;
  • Additive manufacturing and 3D bioprinting/Nanodevice;
  • Wound healing and cancer;
  • Clinical applications.

Furthermore, specific session will be dedicated to innovative biomaterials for antibiotic-resistance with the aim to develop innovative solutions to accelerate tissue regeneration and prevent biomaterial-associated infections (inhibiting the formation of biofilms).

We are looking forward seeing you in Lecce! Kind regards, The SIB2021 Organizing Committee
