T1- Plasma surface engineering for biomaterials

Monday July 22, 2019
8h45-12h15
, Québec City Convention Centre
Plasma-based technologies have emerged as attractive surface-sensitive methods for the development of highly functionalized biomaterials. They are low-cost, industry-friendly processes that allow selective modification in the nanometer range on a wide variety of materials (polymers, metals, ceramics, etc.). In the fields of biomaterials and biomedical materials, this can be used to enhance the biological response and bio-integration of implants and other devices. This tutorial will serve as a comprehensive introduction to the science of plasma surface modifications, through the presentations of distinguished academic and industrial researchers.

T2 - Advanced characterization of surfaces & interfaces for biomaterials

Monday July 22, 2019
13h45-17h15, Québec City Convention Centre

With the explosive growth of the biomaterials field in the last decades came the development of an impressive array of novel advanced characterization techniques. This leaves the modern scientist with the often-daunting task to not-only-select the right analysis method, but to also use it properly for the characterization of biomaterials. In this regard, this tutorial will provide an overview of several surface and interface analysis techniques, including scanning probe microscopy, electrochemistry, spectroscopy and diffractions techniques, with presentations from several specialists from around the world. The tutorial will be articulated around 4 clusters.

T3 - Surfaces and interfaces for biology and biosensors

Monday July 22, 2019
8h45-12h15, Québec City Convention Centre

With the growing concern over detecting diseases, pathogenic bacteria, and vital physiological signal, the search for effective biosensors solutions is at the forefront of research in biomaterials. The chemistry and topography of surfaces and interfaces have proven to be a significant factor in the bacterial colonization of devices, biological response and biosensors. Thus, the design of sensor materials, surfaces and devices is now increasingly moving towards surface modification processes. This tutorial, will present several of the recent innovative strategies used to design surfaces and interfaces for biosensors.

T4 - Biological response to surfaces & interfaces in biomaterials, including antibacterial

Monday July 22, 2019
13h45-17h15
, Québec City Convention Centre
The interface between biomaterials and biological systems plays a crucial role on the integration of medical devices in the organism, but the variety and complexity of the interactions make the design of new materials with a specific biological response quite challenging. However, rapid progress in that field, driven by a number of clinical and industrial applications such as medical implants, stem cell therapies and tissue engineering, has considerably advanced our knowledge of biological interactions with surfaces. The aim of this tutorial is to discuss certain of these interesting advancements, through presentations by experienced academic researchers.
