  • Workshop 2 May 26 (Sun) 13:00 PM - 17:30 PM In Situ Rheology of Viscoelastic Biomaterials

    New designs of stimuli sensitive and viscoelastic hydrogels are under development that have unique characterization requirements of quantifying both liquid and solid mechanical properties within a single material.  In situ activation by various stimuli of thermal, photo, voltage, ultrasound, or magnetic fields requires amenable rheological instruments and relatively fast acquistion times. This workshop will present case studes of viscoelastic biomaterials and address developments of in situ rheometry measurements quantify various liquid and elastic properties in real-time, including dynamic viscosity, gelation time, shear modulus, yield stress and resin expansion/shrinkage. Case studies of magnetic induction thermosets (magnetocuring), voltage activated adhesives (electrocuring), and light activated glues (photocuring) at elevated temperatures will be presented to diplay both the advantages, limitations, and common mistakes found in rheology setups/analysies. This workshop is targeted to both beginner/intermediate users or those attempting rheometery experiments that simultaneously characterize both liquid and solid mechanical properties in the shear and tensile modes.  A total of 3 speakers (chair + 2 additional speakers) will be identified for 3 x 45 minute talks. 15 minute Q&A sessions are schedules between all talks to address audience queries and interactions. 

  • Workshop 3 May 26 (Sun) 13:00 PM - 17:30 PM NewPI in Biomaterials Research

    The purpose of this workshop is to provide participants, ranging from upper-level graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and junior faculty, with tools and strategies to accomplish their academic career goals. The workshop will cover topics including: how to successfully fund your research, effectively manage your team, and establish and maintain an institutional and international scientific identity. We will discuss grant writing strategies, responsible spending of your start-up funds, setting lab culture and expectations, networking, and other nuances that come along with getting started in your faculty career. 

    The workshop will feature junior faculty panelists who can share their diverse perspectives from their experiences setting up labs at institutions of varying sizes, research-levels, and locations. We will intentionally include international faculty to represent international perspectives. Following the panel, we will lead the participants in networking challenges as well as peer discussions, group sessions, and activities to gain additional insights from faculty and peers alike.  

    Lastly, we will provide participants with an electronic toolkit which will include the information disseminated in the workshop and templates, such as lab expectation documents. This workshop will equip #NewPIs in biomaterial research with the foundation to become future leaders in the field.

  • Workshop 4 May 26 (Sun) 13:00 PM - 17:30 PM Biomaterials Science Excellence and Technology Translation

    Innovative biomaterial research and development have greatly improved the health and economy worldwide. The objective of this workshop is to host the biomaterial leaders to discuss the key elements en route to successful biomaterial technology translation with the participation of academic researchers, investors, industrial leaders, scientists, and students. The outcome is to a platform where biomaterial excellence finds its exit to technology translation and a networking opportunity to mingle with academic and industrial leaders in biomaterials. This workshop is relevant to the WBC topics including Biomaterials for industrial applications, Biomaterials enabling technologies, Biomaterials for pre-clinical and clinical translation, and Biomaterials for tissue engineering.

  • Workshop 5 May 26 (Sun) 13:00 PM - 17:30 PM Explore a better future with advanced science and technology

    1) Objectives or purposes: Explore a better future with advanced science and technology

    2) Proposed program and target audience: include at least 4-5 wellknown scientists in the biomateials field, they have very excellent reputation and scientific credits internationally on the immunological regulation of biomaterials applied in clinic as scarfold. The targeted audiences are suitable for undergraduates or graduates and earlier careers of pricinpal investigators who are interested in the multiple functions of biocompatible materials applied in vivo for replacement of tissue or efficient treatment of maglinent tumors.

    3) Expected outcomes and relevance to the main topic of WBC 2024
    Wish this workshop as platform to attract more students and young scientists who are involved in the biomaterials practical transition for clinical applications, the audences will receive broader overview on the immunoligical outcome of Biomaterials how it works efficiently in vivo by a novel pathway. It will construct straight bridge to tight with main topic of WBC 2024 and broader the coverage of conference with additional mechanism and scientific direction of biomaterials.

  • Workshop 6 May 26 (Sun) 13:00 PM - 17:30 PM Recent Advanced in 3D Printing and Bioprinting for Medical Applications

    Industrial and academic researchers have recently examined the use of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies to overcome the limitations associated with conventional biomedical manufacturing processes. These technologies involve the processing of biomaterials into three-dimensional structures through the joining of materials in a layer-by-layer manner. This workshop will review recent developments in 3D printing and bioprinting technologies for processing biomaterials into artificial tissues as well as biosensors, drug delivery devices, and medical instruments. Several topics related to 3D printing and bioprinting, including the development of appropriate computer models, novel 3D printing and bioprinting technologies, and novel materials for use in 3D printing and bioprinting, will be discussed. This workshop will create collaboration among the many groups involved in the development and use of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies, including biomaterials scientists, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians. We anticipate that this workshop will facilitate future research activities, including industry-university collaborations, involving 3D printing and bioprinting of biomaterials for use in medicine, surgery, and dentistry. 

    The target audience will include: 
    - university-, government-, and industry-based biomaterial engineers
    - medical scientists
    - medical device manufacturers
    - equipment manufacturers
    - regulatory officials and administrators
    - clinicians
