Biointerfaces International 2021 with Science and TranslationalSessions

TEDD co-organizes the BIC 2021. We will host the special Translational Session dedicated to the scientific and technological challenges in the development of tissue- and organ-like laboratory models to replace animal testing (3R: Replace, Reduce, Refine concept).

Biointerfaces International 2021, Zurich A conference on science, technology and translation

Biological surfaces and interfaces: where synthetic materials and biological systems interact with and engage each other - one of the most innovative and expanding areas of science and technology over the last two decades.

Biointerfaces International 2021 Conference follows a special format: Programming aims to build bridges across relevant application areas, between science & engineering, innovation & technology, industry and academic partners and between senior scientists & early-career researchers. Both internationally highly renowned and young scientists from academia, industry and clinics present their latest, often unpublished scientific findings and technological breakthroughs to a diverse audience.

An additional conference focus is education across the many fields of relevance to biological surfaces and interfaces. All conference speakers begin their talks with a general introduction to challenges and strategies that does not require specialized knowledge to follow. Moreover, the Biointerfaces International Seminar 2020 taking place the day before the conference starts (August 24, 2020) covers educational lectures on science, technology and translation to application by speakers both internationally renowned and respected for their contributions to both science, education, translation and outreach to society.
