Our aim is to bring together scientists, from both academia and industry, who are interested in a sharing their knowledge and insights into biomaterials science and engineering, artificial organs, and tissue engineering, as well as to discuss the advances in frontier issues in these fields.

The motto of Congress “Integrating and strengthening the Latin-American Biomaterials’ Community” will focus on institutional relations and scientific communication links between Latin-American research centers and universities, companies that develop and market biomedical products, and regulatory entities.

COLAOB will offer a unique opportunity for the young researchers, professionals and PhD students interact with leaders in the field and present their achievements during oral and poster sessions.
