Lucideon will be hosting a science for industry session at the 28th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB 2017) in Athens.  The session, titled ‘Advanced Materials for Biomedical Applications’, will focus on soft tissues recently developed using antibacterial materials.

From the 4-8th September ESB will bring together representatives from across all biomaterials disciplines to discuss latest findings and research projects.  Dr Xiang Zhang, principal consultant and head of medical materials at Lucideon, will deliver the science for industry talk, giving contextual insights into the latest advanced materials and materials science research that is being used for industrial applications.

Dr Xiang said:

“It’s an exciting time for the biomaterials industry as new developments and research are delivering new products with improved and complementary functionality.
