ACS organizes two national meetings and expositions. We anticipate that each meeting will attract more than 12,000 chemists, chemical engineers, academicians, graduate and postdoctoral students, and other related professionals.
During the meeting, scientists present multidisciplinary research, hear the latest information in their areas of interest, and network with other scientists. Programming is planned by our 34 technical divisions, which cover all scientific fields, and our secretariats, which focus on multidisciplinary programming. Each meeting features more than 9,000 presentations organized into technical symposia that highlight important research advances. Each ACS National Exposition features approximately 300 exhibiting companies in more than 450 booths.
The theme Materials for Health & Medicine was developed by Thematic Program Chair, Xinqiao Jia (Associate Professor, Materials Science & Engineering, Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware).
The theme will showcase the latest developments in biomaterials research as they are related to health and medicine. Technical symposia will cover a wide range of topics not limited to, but including:
- Understanding the complexity of biological systems at molecular and cellular levels
- Molecular design of novel biomaterials
- Probing the interactions between materials and cells/tissues
- Designing strategies to modulate the in vivo and in vitro responses to synthetic materials
- Designing novel devices for diagnostic purposes and adaptation of microfabrication tools for biological and medical studies.
