9th Annual IBTN Symposium: 3D Printing in Healthcare and Medicine
Apr 20
April 20, 2020 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
UIC College of Dentistry

The  Institute of Biomaterials, Tribocorrosion , and Nanomedicine (IBTN-US) will hold its 9th Annual Symposium on Friday, April 20, 2020 at the UIC College of Dentistry.

The IBTN symposium is an annual research meeting organized by UIC, Rush, Midwestern and NU researchers for last 7 years. Currently, IBTN has international branches in Brazil, India, Europe, South Africa and Taiwan.  The conference offers the latest development in the healthcare materials and include invited lectures, Research and Poster presentations.

The IBTN Annual Meeting provides numerous opportunities for you to hear the latest research discoveries from the experts, learn about technology advances in the field, participate in panel discussions and poster presentations, and build new network. Each year, IBTN Research scholar awards will be given to the research students based on their Poster presentations. This is sponsored by TMJ concepts and Springer Publishers. IBTN will support the participant/researchers to publish their excellent scientific and technical work in peer-reviewed issue of the Springer Journal (Journal of Bio & Tribocorrosion-JBTC), so we strongly encourage all authors to submit manuscripts for consideration by April 1st, 2020.

About IBTN

The  Institute of Biomaterials, Tribocorrosion , and Nanomedicine (IBTN) is an organization that understands the need of a multidisciplinary  research team in order to generate innovative solutions to the critical clinical/healthcare issues and applications and formulation of better clinical treatment/management. This institute is formed in 2012, by some researchers at UIC and Rush at Chicago. The main focuses on the research and teaching related to biomaterials, Nano-medicine, regenerative medicine, corrosion, tribology and tribocorrosion aspects of the biomedical implants.

The team consists of clinicians, material scientists, bioengineers, mechanical engineers, and chemical engineers from University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of Biomedical Science at UIC Rockford and Department of Orthopedics, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago.

Our mission is to contribute in the advancement of scientific knowledge in regenerative medicine, Nano-medicine and biomaterials (development, surface modification and characterization) for the versatile clinical application for generating and maintaining implants with required durability and multifunctional performance.

Biomaterials Research at UIC College of Dentistry

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.
