2021 Hawaii - Joint Symposium - SFB + JSB

The three-day program will feature addresses by our honorees and other sessions of interest in their respective areas of expertise: implant pathology, polymers, hard materials, and tissue engineering.

 

Abstracts will be solicited beginning in Winter 2020. For more information on the program, abstract solicitation, or sponsorship opportunities, please visit the links below. 

This website will be updated as more information becomes available.  

The four main focus areas of the 2021 Scientific Program will follow the work of these four pioneers.
