Comments from a recent attendee:

“I would like to thank you for putting together such a wonderful and invaluable course on biomaterials. I really enjoyed every lecture and learned a lot. It is hard to imagine that one can get such a wealth of information at any one given place. The information presented is MUST KNOW information for any serious biomaterials scientist.”
