Following the successes of the past 9 editions, we are proud to introduce and welcome you to
the 10
th Symposium on Biodegradable Metals in University of Oxford , England
from Sunday August 26 to Friday August 31, 2018.

This year again, the symposium will emphasize its academic-conference-style with an openly discursive format, rather than a lecture and question–answer format. This style will be completed by the traditional discussions and the unconventional daily free-time sessions early in the afternoon. Behind the presentations, this symposium aims to discuss open questions on the session topics, new approaches, background knowledge, and personal views among the participants. Furthermore, discussions at the poster session will focus on specific topics and will encourage the participants to raise critical questions or help each other advancing the field of biodegradable metals.

The unique environment offered by the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Science, at the Botnar Research Centre in the University of Oxford will offer the most suitable environment for pushing the frontiers of the Biometal Science toward innovative translational applications in clinics.

Finally, the historical environment of the University of Oxford, founded 1096, will complete the experience we intend to offer to the attendees. The location was especially selected for bringing the attendees in a new region to explore, know and be inspired from.

Please join us in deepening our knowledge in the field and discovering the unique historical heritage in this side of the world!

If potentially interested, we strongly suggest you to do not wait last minute to register, the number of attendees is limited and registration will be treated on the principle first arrived – first served.

We really hope to welcome you at the next 10th Biometal 2018 next August!

Prof. Diego Mantovani, Prof. Mark Staiger, Prof. Yufeng Zheng, Prof. Frank Witte
