Bioceramics: Advances and Challenges for Affordable Healthcare.
Presented by Dr. Larry Hench

The ethical and technical challenges facing affordable healthcare in the 21st century are addressed, with an emphasis on the evolution and clinical applications of bioactive ceramic materials. Topics include tissue bonding, regenerative medicine, state-of-the-art medical implants and long-term viability, along with socio-economic implications and ethical considerations. Alternative approaches to tissue repair will be discussed, and the advent of third generation materials and nano-materials will be addressed.
