As one of the oldest Special Interest Groups (SIGs) at the Society for Biomaterials (SFB), the BioInterfaces (BioI) SIG has deep roots in fundamental studies of proteins and cells at biomaterial interfaces. Members of the BioI SIG seek to stimulate the application of these phenomena in technological innovation.
Increasingly, however, we think of proteins and cells as active and designable components of biomaterials. This ongoing evolution creates rich opportunities for members of the BioI SIG.
The new leadership of the BioI SIG envisions a future wherein our members will be uniquely poised to advance a biomaterials lens to cutting-edge research in proteins and cells, as well as translating progress in protein and cell biology into innovative biomaterials.
To advance this vision, Felipe will be serving as Chair of the BioI SIG for 2021-2023. He will be working with a terrific team:
Erik Dreaden, PhD
Stephanie Florczyk, PhD
Secretary/Treasurer and former Chair
Nathan Gallant, PhD
