Workshop 1: Biomaterials Science Excellence and Technology Translation Workshop
Timeslot: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 8:00am to 10:00am
Room: Yakima 1
Biomaterials Science Excellence and Technology Translation Workshop: Biomaterials Science has gained increasing importance at the forefront of interdisciplinary research and undoubtedly the advance of biomaterial science will have great impact on the health and economy development. This workshop, co-sponsored/organized by (Oversea) Chinese Association for Biomaterials (CAB), includes invited presentations/lectures from global biomaterial leaders and rising mid-career/young investigators in biomaterials science and a panel discussion to discuss biomaterial innovation, international collaboration, venture investment, company startups, intellectual property, and other key elements en route to successful biomaterial technology translation. The panelists consist of investors, business attorneys, faculty entrepreneurs, and industrial leaders. It is expected the workshop will attract a significant number of international participants, especially from Asian countries and Australia, partly due to the meeting venue on the west coast. This workshop is a platform where biomaterial excellence finds exit to technology translation and a networking opportunity for friendship and collaboration with oversea Chinese-American/Chinese faculty, students, and thought leaders in the field.
