Welcome to the European Society for Biomaterials

A year-long 'virtual environment' where scientists, clinicians, industrials and regulatory affairs experts can network.

International visibilityA great place to share

We aim to champion initiatives that enhance awareness regarding the environmental impact of our research and the operations of the European Society for Biomaterials. Our goal is to minimise environmental damage while maintaining a commitment to high-quality research aimed at advancing human health, as opposed to just maintaining research at a high level.

A Colourful Cuddle
In this experiment, human mesenchymal stem cells (stained with phalloidin) and cell-adhesive microgels (stained with ATTO565 (red) and FITC (green)) self-assembled into a living microtissue. The properties of these cell-adhesive microgels are both physically and chemically tuneable. Moreover, the cell-adhesive microgels are able to direct the behaviour of the cells, for example by influencing cell fate by microgel stiffness.
Instrument used to produce the image: Zeiss LSM880
