Biointerfaces International 2020 Zurich Conference (BIC2020)

The BIC2020 is a biennial international three-day event, which will take place the next time in August 25-27, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland.

Biological surfaces and interfaces where synthetic materials and biological systems interact with and engage each other - one of the most innovative and expanding areas of science and technology. BIC2020 aims to build bridges across relevant application areas, between science & engineering, innovation & technology, industry and academic partners and between senior scientists & early-career researchers.


Sessions topics BIC-2020:

  • Stem Cell Technology & Regenerative Medicine, Personalized Health, Gene Editing Technologies (e.g. CRISPR/Cas9) 
  • Organoids, Organ-on-Chip, Lab-on-Chip, 3D Imaging, Verification and Validation, Translational Challenges
  • 3D Cell & Matrix Printing, Tissue Engineering
  • Mechanobiology
  • Nanoparticulate Systems for Diagnosis and Targeted Therapy incl. (Drug) Delivery Systems and Precision Medicine
  • Neuronal Interfaces, Bioelectronics and Biosensors
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computational Modelling Approaches to Biomaterials, Biointerfaces and Biomedical Processes
  • Functional Material-Biology Interfaces (to Tissue, Cells, Bacteria, Enzymes/Proteins, etc.),Bioinspired Responsive Surfaces, immuno-Modulatory Biointerfaces
  • Progress in Surface & Interface Characterization and Imaging (static/dynamic, in-situ and ex-situ), Bio-Tribology.
