Biomaterials Day, funded by the Society for Biomaterials (SFB), is a one-day symposium at five different locations throughout the United States.

Biomaterials Day at The University of Texas at Austin will enhance networking between academic, industrial and government sectors and will increase student exposure to exciting biomaterials research. Students throughout the area, SFB members as well as non-SFB members interested in the biomaterials field attend the event. The symposium will include keynote and invited lectures by leading engineers, physicians, and scientists in the field. Oral presentations from both academic and industrial researchers will showcase ongoing research in the region and promote collaboration and knowledge exchange between institutions and industry. Finally, abstracts will be solicited for a poster session that will provide a venue for student research presentations and networking. Awards will be given for best poster.

SFB officially initiated the Biomaterials Day program in 2008 to highlight cutting-edge research and increase student interest in biomaterials careers.
