International Conference NanoBioMater 2017 & NanoBioMater Summer School


--- The official programme is now available for download here. ---

The Summer School will take place on June 27th 2017.
The international conference will take place from June 28th to June 30th 2017.


Hybrid materials of functional organic and inorganic phases are promising candidates for tailored materials in future technologies; their performance often surpasses that of synthetic analogues. The international conference NanoBioMater 2017 focuses on the design and scientific exploration of biohybrid functional materials. This interdisciplinary field of research will be discussed with emphasis on nanostructures and their technological uses, chemistry, biology, processing and materials science. The conference scope is to address the individual components contributing to hybrid materials, e.g. synthetic hydrogels, biotemplates (derived of plant viruses, further biomolecular complexes, or peptides), structure-directing enzymes and biomineralization, as well as beneficial combinations and applications thereof.

The program will focus on the following topics:
 
  • Bio(inspired) mineralization for shaping and tuning functional materials
     
  • Biological nano- to mesoscale assemblies directing structure and function of biocomposites
     
  • Hydrogel matrices: chemical synthesis, modulation, and integration with additives
     
  • Processing routes and engineering of biohybrid material formulations
     
  • Selected applications of nanostructured biohybrid materials
     

NanoBioMater 2017 is intended to be an international and interdisciplinary symposium on cutting-edge research in the field of nanostructured biohybrid materials. Oral presentations of original research will be given in a plenary session format. All conferees are encouraged to submit and present posters of their latest research on the poster session.
