Abstract:

Presentations given at this conference, held in July 1987 in Cambridge, UK, are discussed. The conference was focused on the ways in which biotechnological products and man-made materials interact physically and chemically with biological environments. The aim of the conference was to enlarge and improve understanding between materials and life scientists by focusing on the ways in which biotechnological products and man-made materials interact physically and chemically with biological environments. Behavior at surfaces strongly influences the effectiveness of implanted materials and such phenomena can be appropriately adapted to specific situations. The program format consisted of the following topics Cellpolymer interactions, Blood surface interactions, Innovations Monoclonal antibodies and biosensors, Biocompatibility, Bioadhesion, Drug delivery systems. Keywords Artificial tissue, Tissue graphs, Surgical implantation.
