The University of Florida Chapter of the Society for Biomaterials (SFB) is part of the larger national organization. The chapter is composed of both undergraduate and graduate students spanning many biomaterial-related concentrations and departments. Each semester we host general body meetings to discuss current advancements in biomaterials through presentations given by students and faculty. Other career advancing workshops are also provided. UF SFB also provides an environment to network with other students and faculty through social events. Our largest event is Biomaterials Day which is held annually in the spring. This one-day symposium provides an interdepartmental environment to discuss current biomaterial research through internal and external guest speakers, industry representatives, student poster sessions, and student presentations.
