25th Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine (SSB+RM2019)

The 1.5 day conference is open to everybody interested in the scientific, technological and medical aspect of biomaterials. The meeting is aimed at scientists, engineers, medical doctors and industrial representatives who work with implant materials or tissue engineering for regenerative medicine. A special session on Biodegradable Materials is planned.
