Facing the challenges of an aging population, biomaterial research has become more important over the past decades. A broad set of scientific skills is required to process, characterize and apply biocompatible materials. In this workshop, the following topics will be addressed:
- Synthesis and processing of (bio)materials and polymers
- Biological in-vitro and high-throughput analysis on a cellular level
- Handling of complex data and automated image analysis
- Current and upcoming applications in clinical contexts
- Competences for a successful doctorate and future working life
The workshop is primarily designated for doctoral students and Post-Docs. All participants are requested to present their own research project during a poster session and have the opportunity to win a poster cash prize sponsored by Yokogawa.
The deadline for registration and poster abstract submission is December 31st, 2018.

Organization and Funding:
This workshop is organized by the doctoral students of the study course “Intelligente Prozess- und Materialentwicklung in der Biomateriomics” which was founded with the objective of bringing together researchers from broad academic backgrounds into an interdisciplinary network. This doctoral study course is a cooperation between the University of Tübingen and Reutlingen University, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Arts of Baden-Württemberg.
We thank the Institutional Strategy of the University of Tübingen (DFG, ZUK 63) for funding this workshop.
