Biomaterials Awards
International Union Of Societies For Biomaterials Science And Engineering (IUS-BSE)

The International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering represents the international biomaterials community and is composed of two members from each of the constituent societies. The two current CBS members can be found here.

The IUS-BSE meets every four years at the World Biomaterials Congress, and otherwise annually at the Society for Biomaterials (U.S.) conference. It also works informally between meetings. To maintain continuity between World Congresses, the committee is chaired by the members from one society on a 4-year rotation. Further, each society is asked to keep its IUS-BSE representation constant during that time. 

You may visit the IUS-BSE's website here.

Here is the organizational membership of the current IUS-BSE. For more information on each member society, visit their homepage:
