We are pleased to welcome you to the 6th Symposium Interface Biology of Implants in Rostock; which is traditionally held in the “Kurhaus Warnemünde” on the beautiful coast of the Baltic Sea. In 2019 the University of Rostock will celebrate its 600th anniversary. It is one of the oldest universities in the Baltic region. Throughout these years, the University of Rostock has developed to become a renowned centre, where international scientists and academics focus on new achievements. Our symposium will complement the events of the anniversary.
Participants can expect a scientific programme that will focus on the interdisciplinary aspects of designing medical implants in the field of regenerative medicine. The application of bioactive implants in different fields of medicine has considerably increased over recent years. However, with the growing number of implants it has also become obvious that there is a limiting factor to translate regenerative implants into the clinician understanding of the molecular interactions between living tissue and the implant material which is required.
This symposium will once again bring scientists together from various disciplines. This interdisciplinary is necessary, because to guide cell behaviour and tissue development by biomaterials, the collaboration between a variety of disciplines, such as materials science, physics, chemistry and life sciences is needed. Highly recognised invited speakers will present their latest research results concerning the generation of bioactive materials and cellular responses. Due to the fact that this field of applied research requires continuous input from basic sciences, cellular mechanisms of cell adhesion, and mechanical control of cells, will be discussed.
We hope you will enjoy your time in Rostock where we are sure that we will celebrate a meeting to remember.
