Bio-interfaces

23–26 May 2004, Barossa Valley, South Australia

The Physical Chemistry of Bio-interfaces Workshop will be held immediately following the 7th World Biomaterials Congress (17–21 May 2004, Sydney, Australia). This satellite workshop will focus on providing fundamental mechanistic insights into bio-interfaces using physico-chemical methods. The workshop format will allow for in-depth discussions on topics such as interfacial forces and properties involved in protein/surface interactions, non-fouling surfaces, molecular kinetics of drug delivery, and more.

This meeting will also provide an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of experimental and theoretical studies of bio-interfaces and biomolecule-surface interactions. Increased understanding of interactions between biomolecules and surfaces, the behavior of complex macromolecular systems at materials interfaces, and biomolecule-biomolecule interactions will contribute to the rapid growth in biomedical research, biotechnology, diagnostics, proteomics, genomics, dentistry, and medicine. Advances in materials science, molecular biology, surface and interface analysis methods, and theoretical and modeling approaches to biological systems will be featured in this workshop, as well as experimental tools and theoretical models to describe bio-interface phenomena with physical concepts and rules that allow predictive, model-driven research.

Invited and contributed talks will be selected for their ability to advance fundamental understanding of the topic, relevant to biomaterials, bio-diagnostics, and drug delivery applications.
