A large delegation of our Institute attended the 30th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) held in conjuction with the 26th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM) in Dresden on 9-13 September 2019. Professor Boccaccini was a member of the Scientific Committee of ESB 2019 and organised two special symposia, namely ” Bioactive glasses: from the laboratory to the clinic”, together with Prof. Delia Brauer (Univ. of Jena) and “3D Structures in Tissue Engineering and Disease Modelling” together with Prof. Ipsita Roy (University of Sheffield, UK). Our contributions included 17 posters and 5 oral presentations. Ms Susanne Heid (PhD student) was among the winners of the “Best student poster award”. Participation of members of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR 225 “From the fundamentals of biofabrication towards functional tissue models” was also prominent, as well as the contributions from researchers collaborating with us within the “_Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass (FunGlass)”.
