Society for Biomaterials

URL:www.biomaterials.org
  • Sophisticated site design, nice organization
  • Many of the videos in the library do not load

Biomaterials are, quite literally, the stuff from which life is made. These are the substances that do everything including hold us together and give seashells their iridescence. In short, these are materials that are ripe for manufacturing (if their secrets could be discovered) and hold promise for fields such as chemistry and medicine. The Society for Biomaterials is a “professional society which promotes advances in all phases of materials research and development,” and its website complements that purpose. One need not be a society member to take advantage of the calendar of biomaterials conferences or the resource guide listing biomaterials-related products and services. There is also a surgical video library that is very nice…for the videos that actually load. Unfortunately, more than a few of the videos refuse to cooperate.
