Welcome to the SSB+RM

The Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine (SSB+RM) welcomes you to its home page. The SSB+RM is the assembly of people in Switzerland working or interested in the field of biomaterials and regenerative medicine, be it on the industrial or the university level. Our Charter and Bylaws describe the goals of our Society. We welcome everybody interested in the wide field of biomaterials and regenerative medicine to join our Society and to participate in our meetings.

Announcement: SSB+RM2016 Meeting

SSB+RM2016 First Announcement

The 22nd Swiss Conference on Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine with the main topic "Biomaterials in Translation" will take place on June 9-10, 2016 at the Schulthess Klinik, Zurich. Announcement Flyer (pdf, 1.5 MB)

2nd Lab & Networking Event

The 2nd Lab & Networking event, organized by the Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine (SSB+RM) and the Association of Young Scientists in the Biomedical Field in Switzerland, will take place in the Laboratory for Orthopaedic Technology (ETH Zurich) on September 18th 2015. The aim of these events is to give young scientists the opportunity to visit laboratories from the SSB+RM network and meet their colleagues in a relaxed environment.

We welcome young scientists (Master Students, PhD Students, Postdocs) to participate in this half-day workshop and learn more about
(1) Models of disc degeneration and their use in regenerative therapies
(2) Electrospinning
(3) Ossified tissue mechanics

As before, this event offers hands-on experience as well as a great networking part after the lab exercises. Participation is free, but registration is mandatory.
