Description

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

When : Aug. 2-3, 2016. from 8 am to 5 pm. (Please arrive on Aug. 1 if you are coming from out of town)

Where : Arlington, VA at the National Science Foundation Headquarters, Room 555, Stafford II Bldg.

Who : Participants from diverse fields have been invited which includes experts in academia, industry, federal agencies.

How : The speakers and participants will take part in a two-day event of talks, discussions, planning, and reporting.

What : The Biomaterials workshop will identify audacious or high risk/high pay -off opportunities in biomaterials where an investment in mid-scale instrumentation would significantly advance the understanding and discovery of new biomaterials and discovery of phenomena. New instruments, processes, foundries or convergence of techniques may also be envisioned.

- Biomaterials are of high priority, as they enrich and prolong human lives, promote understanding of nature, and enable research and industry capabilities that contribute to US advancements - including economic competitiveness and workforce development. This workshop will identify fundamental biomaterials research areas of national importance that would benefit the most from a targeted investment in large scale instrumentation in the range of $4M – $50M and the organization of collaborative teams. Workshop participants will explore ways in which these investments would transform our basic understanding and accelerate biomaterials discoveries over current strategies, methodologies and available tools.

​- The workshop is designed to build a framework through contributions from the ideas and experience of top researchers, scientists, and engineers who will contribute and give insight to the need for such a platform and how the various areas of biomaterials research may benefit from access to such facilities or team of researchers.
