Designing new and improved biomaterials

with Dr Pippa Newby and Dr Jorge Sobral

Join this web seminar on Wednesday, March 16 to learn about how to access comprehensive materials data and tools to compare your research data with current reference materials, helping you to make informed decisions in the design of new and improved biomaterials.

Join this web seminar to:
  • Find out how to add your own data to a comprehensive materials database and compare it to current reference materials
  • Learn how to make rational decisions about materials for a particular purpose
  • Discover how to use CES Selector for research in bioengineering
  • Learn how to combine CES Selector with the online databases such as the Human Biologicals and ASM Medical Materials Database.

How to register and join the session

There is no cost but registration is required through the WebEx system. Please ensure you set your local time zone to receive accurate meeting invitations and test your setup in advance of the meeting. How to use WebEx, including setting times zone & language preferences 

Solving real-life engineering problemsAbout CES Selector

CES Selector is a PC application that enables materials experts and product development teams to find, explore, and apply materials property data. It enables you to make better decisions in early-stage design, re-design, or material replacement; check for potential issues and build confidence in your materials choices; communicate your recommendations; and reduce turnaround time in answering materials-related questions and solving problems.
