Dear Colleagues,

Dear Colleagues,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the 8th International Conference “Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering & Medical Devices” BIOMMEDD’2018 which will be held in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), September 27-29th, 2018.

The aim of this event is to bring together scientists from biomaterials, medical devices and tissue engineering research with clinicians from medical fields who use in clinical practice the implants and prostheses made from various biomaterials. Clinicians from different specialties (dentistry, orthopedics, and neurosurgery, cardiovascular and other surgery) will be here to present their results on the clinical performance of current medical devices and debates on the translation of biomaterials and tissue engineering research into clinical practice. The choice of the keynote speakers will bring on stage home some of the best scientist from the field of biomaterials, tissue engineering and medical devices.

Round table discussions intended to promote interdisciplinary research projects will be organized and a technical exhibition will run in parallel with the scientific sessions.

The conference will also host a Young Scientists Forum who could promote new ways of communicating and thinking on the research and educational aspects, and the General Assembly of the Romanian Society for Biomaterials.

Welcome to Cluj-Napoca!


Yours sincerely,

Iulian Antoniac
BIOMMEDD‘2016 President
on behalf the Conference Steering Committee

27-29th September 2018

All details about the paper selection criteria will be available on the conference website.

Young Scientist Forum (YSF-RO)

The YSF-RO is an event, aimed at discussing biomaterials education and training, emphasizing the existing and emerging career, as well as research opportunities in the field. The main goal is to promote interactions between young scientists in the pre-doctoral and early post-doctoral stages. YSF-RO events discussion is fostered by creating an interactive environment amongst participants, thus promoting an enriching discussion on topics that concern everyone who graduated, or will do so, in biomaterials.
