HyMedPoly PhD researcher Binh Thi Thanh Phan attended the 4th International Society for Biomedical Polymers and Polymeric Biomaterials, held July 15-18, 2018 in Krakow, Poland. This is the first time the ISBPPB conference and exhibition has taken place outside the United States. The conference attracted 255 delegates from 36 countries to join and discuss hot polymeric biomaterial topics, such as controlled release systems, drug delivery systems, antimicrobial polymer, biodegradable polymers and copolymers and tissue engineering.
Ms Phan is a PhD student at Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Institute of Biomaterials, under the academic supervision of Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, and is currently seconded to Lucideon Ltd., Stoke-on-Trent, UK. A poster and rapid-fire presentations “Design of poly ε-caprolactone/zein blends for delivery of essential oils as antimicrobial biomaterials” were given by Ms Phan. The presentations received positive feedback and review from participants. Ms Phan said “ISBPPB2018 was a great place to share new ideas and fascinating work for promising biomaterials.”
