AMM Conference 2023
The AMM Conference 2023 invites the UoM AMM community and clinicians to join us for an in-person afternoon of talks around the research within UoM surrounding biomaterials, tissue engineering, nanomedicine, and bioelectronics.
In addition to talks by AMM Theme Leads, the event includes talks by our funded Early Career Researchers (ECRs), and a showcase of clinically translated projects. The afternoon will close with drinks and an ECR poster session (5pm-6pm).
To sign up to present a poster at the ECR poster session, please fill out this form by Friday 9 December 2022.
Please contact email@example.com if you have any other queries.
