The student chapter of North Carolina A&T State University’s Society For Biomaterials is hosting Biomaterials Day 2016 as the Chapter’s inaugural event on May 5th, from 8:30 am to 4 am in Fort-IRC 410. Biomaterials Day at NCAT is a one-day symposium consisting of a plenary address from Dr. William Wagner and speaker presentations from academia as well as industry representatives. Graduate and Undergraduate students from interdisciplinary majors will present their research in oral/poster format. The objectives of this SFB chapter is to enhance student interest in biomaterials and related disciplines, to promote advancement of biomaterials research and education and its related aspects, and to further the aims and objectives of the SFB as they relate to student research and education. Our theme for this year is: “Innovative Processing of Biomaterials from Lab Bench to Industry and Entrepreneurship”.

X-Ray imaging has multiple applications in the modern world spanning materials and biological sciences and is fast becoming a tool for the masses used by clinicians who may operate equipment to marketers who wish to present technical information in an extremely accessible way. Concepts of X-ray CT technology with applications to health and materials sciences utilizing data generated at NC A&T will be discussed. Special attention will be given to understanding the limits and challenges of the technique and data set interpretation, opportunities afforded by collaboration, and the beauty of the world utilizing the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Special emphasis will be given to current efforts to create 3d data inputs for virtual physics and 3d printing applications by highlighting student projects at A&T and other academic collaborators. Speaker: Dr. Boyce Collins (Engineering Research Center for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials, North Carolina A&T State University)
