UIC College of Dentistry

The  Institute of Biomaterials, Tribocorrosion , and Nanomedicine (IBTN-US) will hold its 6th Annual Symposium on Monday, April 16, 2018 in Lecture Hall North. This year’s  symposium title is  'New Directions in Regenerative Medicine and Biomaterials.'

At UIC, we are moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

We are leading investigations into how materials interact with living tissues, and the building of tissue replacements for the growth of cells/tissues to replace lost tissues. The Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration (CWHTR) is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted to the study of injury, wound healing, and regeneration. The Laboratory of Applied Dental Biomaterials and Interfaces is a NIH funded center studying the properties of the tooth in order to develop reparative/regenerative biomaterials to replace lost tooth structure.

 

Topics Covered

  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Biomaterials
  • Implants
  • Tissue Engineering
  • Nano-medicine
  • Surface modifications
  • Cell-material integrations
  • Tissue imaging
  • Total Joint Replacements
  • Bio-Tribocorrosion
