The annual conference of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM) was held on 6-8 November 2014 in Dresden. The chairman was Prof. M. Gelinsky (Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research, University Hospital of. Dresden), pictured with Prof. A.R. Boccaccini and Dr R. Detsch. Results of our Emerging Fields Initiative funded project TOPbiomat were presented by Dr Detsch on Biofabrication [1]. Our research on patches for cardiac tissue engineering were presented by Marwa Tallawi (PhD student). Also Ms Teresa Buettner (Master student in our Institute) attended the conference (pictured with A. R. Boccaccini and R. Detsch). Another contribution with participation of our group was the presentation of Mr Thorsten Masuch on tissue engineering of muscle using electrospun PCL-collagen fibres, a collaboration with Dr J.
