Young Scientist Group

MISSION:

The main objective of the Young Scientist Group within the Society For Biomaterials (SFB) is to facilitate and promote the entry, development, and full participation of young scientists within SFB and the broader biomaterials community. Undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, young industrial professionals, young faculty, and other young scientists are included in SFB’s Young Scientist Group.
