Nanoscale Bioceramics in Healthcare and High Performance Ceramics

Stoke-on-Trent, UK | Posted on February 24th, 2011

The Institute of Nanotechnology and CERAM, the leading materials testing,
analysis and consultancy organisation, have teamed up to present a two-day
Workshop on the application of bioactive glass and ceramics at the
nanoscale to healthcare and high-tech industries The use of novel
nanoceramics is rapidly growing in a variety of healthcare and medical
applications such as orthopaedics, regenerative medicine, dentistry,
biosensing, controlled drug release, high performance coatings and
functionalised biomaterials, due to their excellent properties and
biocompatibility. High performance, functional and sensor ceramics are
also finding use in the electronics and associated industries.

The Workshop, which will run over two days on 12th and 13th October 2011,
will feature presentations from leading international experts in the field
and will take place at CERAM's headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent,
Staffordshire, which is easily reached by road or public transport. On the
first day an optional tour of CERAM's extensive analytical facilities,
including the Surface Science and Medical Materials laboratories, will be
available.
