Anniversary Conference
Biomaterials in Medicine
and Veterinary Medicine
13 - 16 October 2016 Rytro, Poland

Dear Participants,


We are extremely grateful for your presence at the 25th Anniversary Conference ‘Biomaterials in Medicine and Veterinary Medicine’. It is time to sum up this 4-day event.

During the Conference, we had a pleasure to listen to 4 outstanding Plenary Lectures given by Prof. Joëlle Amédée, Prof. Tomasz Drewa, Prof. Didier Letourner and Dr. Timothy Douglas accompanied by 24 oral, 89 poster and 20 Rapid Fire presentations. We have all learned a lot and enjoyed high level of scientific discussions. 

This year, we had also a wonderful opportunity to honour two highly appreciated and esteemed scientists - Prof. Marta Błażewicz & Prof. Stanisław Błażewicz. They have both dedicated their scientific careers to biomaterials field and raised many excellent scientists. We were proud to have them as our Honorary Guests. We had even more to celebrate with the 20th birthday of the Polish Society for Biomaterials and 25th anniversary of the Conference.

We would like to congratulate once again the winners of the Best Poster and Rapid Fire Competition organized under the auspices of the Young Scientist Forum of the ESB: Martina Trávníčková (1st), Aleksandra Jastrzębska (2nd) and Katarzyna Klimek (3rd) – we wish you all the best in further scientific career. It is also a good place to say thank you to the Sponsor of the book vouchers for the winners of the first and the second place (250€ and 125€, respectively): Springer Publishing

We were very happy to hear that the European Society for Biomaterials, represented by Prof. Joëlle Amédée and Prof. Peter Dubruel, surprised us by sponsoring a special prize (200€) for the Best Poster, that went to Klaudia Król-Morkisz

One cannot forget about the unique atmosphere of the social events. Thank you for those three amazing evenings: regional dinner in the cottage bar, gala dinner and the disco, and our lovely trip to Stará Ľubovňa Castle and Nestville Park.

We were privileged to have all of you at the 25th Anniversary Conference ‘Biomaterials in Medicine and Veterinary Medicine’. Thank you! 

Please remember to save the date for our next conference to be held 12-15 October 2017!


Best regards,
