10 years Max Bergmann Center

On May 14, 2012, we celebrated the 10th foundation anniversary of the Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials.

The ceremony took place in the lecture hall of the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden and was followed by a reception in the entrance hall of the Max Bergmann Center. In several lectures, recent developments and future trends in the field of biomaterials were discussed. Alexander Mitchell from San Francisco gave an interesting lecture on Max Bergmann's scientific achievements in the US.
