The biomaterials field is one of the examples where knowledge from different research fields is required. There is a crucial need to combine academic expertise from materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology with the biotech industry's capabilities to reach significant breakthroughs. This will not only have the potential to shed light on deep fundamental concepts of natural material formation but also will lead to the development of new multifunctional material formats.
The general goal of the meeting is to link the recent basic science developments in the field of biomaterials with potential industrial applications. The meeting will bring together scientists from different disciplines, including biochemistry, material science, and biophysics, and leading R&D representatives of the biotech industry, which are unified by the field of biomaterials. It aims to encourage academy-industry discussions and collaborations to promote the development of the biomaterials field in Israel.
