BELGIAN SOCIETY FOR MICROSCOPY VZW · ANNUAL MEETING 2015 · WHEN MATERIALS MEET BIOLOGY



The interface between biology and material science is blurring. Pharmaceuticals are being delivered on nano-carriers, tissues are being mimicked with biopolymers, organs supported with implants... With the growing number of materials being produced from biological substrates and/or being integrated with(in) biological systems, a new multidisciplinary research domain is flourishing. The next BSM annual meeting will focus on all facets of biomaterials, bio-material (cell-substrate) interactions as well as the newest developments in microscopy for fuelling this growing research domain.

Program

The event will take place on September 11th, 2015 at the Grands Auditoires Building of the University of Mons. We have prepared an exciting lineup with several internationally renowned speakers presenting their work, including Yves Dufrêne (UCL, BE), Andre Skirtach (Ugent, BE), Patricia Dankers (TU/e, NL), Sylvain Gabriele (UMons, BE) and Katarina Wolf (Radboud, NL). In addition, the meeting will be accompanied by poster sessions and the 2014 BSM best thesis award.
