To honor excellent scientific work in the area of Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine, the SSB+RM will present two Research Awards a year, one for an outstanding PhD thesis and one for an outstanding MD/DDS thesis. The awards will be given based on originality and impact of the work. The research award consists of CHF 1500.- and a certificate.
Student awards were originally established in the SSB+RM meetings in order to give young scientists recognition of their scientific performance, which could be documented in their curriculum vitae, and to encourage them to continue their research career in the field of biomaterials.
For the meetings of the SSB, best student poster and oral presentations are awarded with a total amount of CHF 1’000.–.
For the oral presentation, we strongly advise students to read our guidelines before starting to prepare the presentation.
To qualify for the student award the candidate must be under 30 years of age, a registered student
