When Biomaterials Meet Biophysics

Dear scientific community,

On 29th of September 2017, the Institute of Biomaterials of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg organizes the 1st International Symposium: „When Biomaterials Meet Biophysics:Innovation Without Borders“.

This symposium will bring together the Biomaterials and Biophysics communities to discuss a number of important research topics, that are attracting the interest from academia and industry (for example, Lab-on-a-Chip, photosynthetic skin, or methods for measuring traction forces at single cell scale, among others).

This symposium is supported by the German Science Foundation (DFG).

We are looking forward to meeting you in Erlangen!


Dr. A. Leal-Egaña

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hab. A.R. Boccaccini

We have a new partner for optical acquisition and image analysis in Erlangen! During our Symposium, Dr. Ralf Palmisano, from the Optical Imaging Centre Erlangen (OICE), will give a short talk about the possibilities offered by them to our research community. Welcome!
