SFB 2023 Annual Meeting


The Society For Biomaterials is excited to host the 2023 Annual Meeting at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina on April 19-22, 2023. The theme for the SFB 2023 Annual Meeting is Riding the Translational Waves to the Future! 

The 2023 Program Committee is requesting input from all SFB members about sessions they would like to see at the 2023 Annual Meeting. Please complete this form to submit any ideas, suggestions, or considerations.

The deadline to submit is June 30, 2022.

The Planning Committee is especially interested in sessions that are pertinent to industry and will explore the very latest new and emerging fields of biomaterials research in the many disciplines that participate in the SFB Annual Meeting including, but not limited to, ideas that involve breakthroughs in biomaterials science, translation of basic research to clinical application, next generation medical devices, and content that explores standards development, regulatory issues and commercial realities.

Special Interest Groups are encouraged to submit ideas jointly with other SIGs or with industry partners to create the most stimulating and interesting sessions for all attendees.


The SFB Annual Meeting features a variety of different session types. Not sure which session type matches your idea?
