Larry Hench Award #UKSB2022

There were so many excellent nominations this year for this award; it was difficult to select just one winner. But it is with pleasure to announce that Dr Tanveer Tabish will be awarded with the excellent prize this year.

The Larry Hench Young Investigators Prize is dedicated to promising young researchers in recognition of their outstanding contributions within the field of biomaterials. This award is given in remembrance of such a key figure of this field – Prof Larry Hench (1938-2015).

Final Deadline Extended #UKSB2022

Due to the Easter break and a few people asking for a little more time to finalise data for their #UKSB2022 abstracts, we have decided to move the deadline to Friday 29th April at 5pm. This will be a final deadline, so please do submit before this deadline.

Thank you to all that have submitted – there are some excellent topics and we can see already the quality of the research coming through. This is going to be a very exciting meeting with many of the founding members of the Society joining for the celebratory event.

Alan Wilson Memorial Lecture Award

It is with pleasure that we announce the award for the Alan Wilson Memorial Lecture this year will be given to Prof Sanjuka Deb, King’s College London to recognise her work and contribution to the UK Biomaterials field in celebration of the life and career of the outstanding dental materials scientist Dr Alan Wilson OBE (1928-2011).

I look forward to hearing about Prof Deb’s latest work as she joins us at #UKSB2022.

Presidents Prize Keynote Speaker Prof Paul Hatton

It is our pleasure to announce this years UKSB Presidents prize will be awarded to Prof Paul Hatton from the University of Sheffield.

We will hear about Prof. Hatton’s vast experience of the biomaterials world, from the fundamentals of biomaterials science to working with clinical partners. This prize will recognize his absolutely outstanding contributions to the field during his career, and I look forward to the many stories and anecdotes he might tell.

Registration now open #UKSB2022

We are happy to open registration for this years conference.

This year we will welcome the biomaterials community to Sheffield, where the UKSB began now 22 years ago. This will be an anniversary celebration delayed slightly due to the past few years of Covid, during which we hosted online annual meetings. #UKSB2022 is set to be an amazing event with some excellent keynote speakers lined up – more details to follow very soon.
