Nano-biomaterials-what challenges are we facing?

Department of Biomaterials brings light to the dark days of winter by organising an exciting scientific on nano-biomaterials seminar.

The seminar raise awareness on nano-biomaterials and to create a meeting place and arena for networks amongst the scientists in Norway working with nano-biomaterials and world leading scientists in the field.

The seminar is open for all participants and we strongly encourage both users and patient of nano-biomaterials to participate to the seminar.
