Scientists positions in Materials for health care at IMDEA Materials Institute

IMDEA Materials Institute is a public research organization founded in 2007 by Madrid’s regional government to carry out research of excellence in Material Science and Engineering by attracting talent from all over world to work in an international and multidisciplinary environment. IMDEA Materials has grown rapidly since its foundation and currently includes more than 120 researchers from 17 nationalities and has become one of the leading research centers in materials in Europe which has received the María de Maeztu seal of excellence from the Spanish government.

4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT2018)

The programme for the 4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT 2018) to be held 26-29 September 2018 in Montreal, Canada is now available to view and download.

The aim of the ICoBT meetings is to bring together researchers from across the scientific, clinical and engineering spectrum, to promote communication across the different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work in one meeting focused solely on Biotribology.

The programme includes:

High-Strength, Durable All-Silk Fibroin Hydrogels with Versatile Processability toward Multifunctional Applications

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/adfm.201704757/full Hydrogels are the focus of extensive research due to their potential use in fields including biomedical, pharmaceutical, biosensors, and cosmetics. However, the general weak mechanical properties of hydrogels limit their utility. Here, pristine silk fibroin (SF) hydrogels with excellent mechanical properties are generated via a binary-solvent-induced conformation transition (BSICT) strategy.

Dear Colleagues,

The upcoming 2017 APS March Meeting will take place in New Orleans, LA during March 13-17, 2017. Here, we would like to invite you to contribute to a focus session called “Physics of Bioinspired Materials” as below. 

2.1.12: Physics of Bio-Inspired Materials (GSOFT, DBIO) [same as 4.1.30]

PhD in Biomaterials for Aerospace Composites

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of Manchester to help develop the next generation of simulation tools. These will be used to evaluate the structural integrity of novel aerospace composites under a wide range of operational conditions.

Mechanics of Additively Manufactured Biomaterials and Implants: Special issue of J Mech Behav Biomed Mater

Additive manufacturing (AM) has emerged as a powerful technique for manufacturing of various types of biomaterials and implants. Using AM, it is now possible to fabricate biomaterials with arbitrarily complex shapes at different scales. The inventory of biomaterials that can be used in this way continues to increase, extending the possible range of products and applications.

Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) lab at TU Delft

After several years of research in the area of additive manufacturing, biofabrication, and additively manufactured biomaterials and implants, I finally put up the first version of the website of my lab. I will gradually improve the website, but there is already links to all publications coming out of my lab in the general area of AM.

Crack Propagation in Bamboo's Hierarchical Cellular Structure

Bamboo, as a natural hierarchical cellular material, exhibits remarkable mechanical properties including excellent flexibility and fracture toughness. As far as bamboo as a functionally graded bio-composite is concerned, the interactions of different constituents (bamboo fibers; parenchyma cells; and vessels.) alongside their corresponding interfacial areas with a developed crack should be of high significance.
