CERAM Release: The First Ever Nanoscale Bioceramics in Healthcare Conference


8/11/2011 11:51:48 AM

August 11, 2011 -- Ceram is pleased to announce that, along with the Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) and the Materials KTN, it is holding the first ever event of its kind – a conference dedicated to the use of Nanoscale Bioceramics in Healthcare. Taking place at Ceram’s Materials Technology Centre in Stoke-on-Trent on 12 and 13 October 2011, the Conference includes a full programme of internationally-acclaimed speakers from academia and industry.

Topics for the two days include: ‘Bioactive Bone Replacement Materials’, ‘Bioactive and Nano-structed Glasses and Ceramics for Tissue Regeneration’, ‘Controlled Release Technology’ and ‘Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Bioscaffolds’. There will also be the opportunity to tour Ceram’s state-of-the-art analytical facilities.

Dr. Xiang Zhang, Principal Consultant, Medical Materials and Devices, at Ceram said:

“We believe that this conference is the first of its kind in the world. Thanks to the many advantages of bioceramics and glass over metals and polymers, sales of bioceramics were over $10 billion in 2010. Over the two days we will discuss the latest developments in this area and find out why and how nanoscale bioceramics are playing, and will play, such a huge part in the development of innovative products for the healthcare industry.”
