Amrita School of Pharmacy will organize an International Webinar on Biomaterials- The Road Ahead: Enabling Affordable and Accessible Medicines, endorsed by Society for Biomaterials and Artificial Organs India (SBAOI), from March 16-17, 2022.
A brief abstract of maximum 200 words with the following contents: (a)Title, (b) Authors, (c) Institutional Address, (d) Corresponding Author Email and (e) Abstract.
Font Details: (a) Font size: 12, (b) Font Face: Times New Roman, with headings in bold, paragraph (single line-justified).
Selected presentations will be awarded first, second and third prizes, in academic, research, PhD and masters category. All the participants will be given participation certificate. Selected papers will get assistance to publish in Scopus indexed journal. All the decisions and results are at the sole discretion of the committee and cannot be challenged.
Both presenting and non-presenting participants can register for the conference. One author cannot present more than one paper. The maximum time allowed is 7 minutes presentation and 3 minutes interaction. Preferably, the “pre-recorded presentation video with audio” need to be submitted by March 12, 2022, but limited number of participants will be allowed to present online based on request. Just before the presentation, the presenting author will be informed and need to be available for the Q&A. The competitors need to mention it clearly in the application form.
Registration Fee: Rs. 500 ( inclusive of GST)
Keynote By: Prof. Bikramjit Basu
Prof. Basu is currently a Professor at the Materials Research Center, with joint appointment at the Center for Biosystems Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. He also serves as Visiting Professor at University of Manchester, UK (2018-2023) and at the European Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass, Alexander Dubček University of Trenčín, Slovakia (2020-2021).
Pro.Basu’s contributions in Engineering Science have been globally recognised. He received Government of India’s most coveted science and technology award, Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize in 2013 for his significant contributions to the field of Biomaterials Science.
Title of the Talk: Biomaterialomics: Data Science-driven Pathways to Develop Fourth-Generation Biomaterials
This talk will focus on development of next generation biomaterials. Conventional approaches to developing biomaterials and implants require intuitive tailoring of process variables, long development cycles, and high expensed. To meet the biomedical and clinical demands, it is critical to accelerate he production of personalized implantable biomaterials and biomedical devices. Building on the Materials Genome Initiative, we define the concept “biomaterialomics” as the integration of multi-omics data and high-dimensional analysis with Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools throughout the entire pipeline of biomaterials development based on their efforts.
