15–19 August 2004, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
The Polymer Networks 2004 Conference (17th Polymer Networks Meeting), jointly organized by the National Institutes of Health (specifically NICHD and NIBIB), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is part of a series of biannual international meetings that began in Strasbourg, France, in 1975. The programs of these meetings include contributions from all areas relevant to the formation, structure, properties, and application of synthetic and natural polymer networks and gels, but at each meeting particular emphasis is put on a specific topic.
The theme for the Polymer Networks 2004 meeting will be “Research of Gelation Phenomena, and Properties of Synthetic and Biopolymer Gels.” The purpose of the conference is to encourage polymer physicists, polymer chemists, materials scientists, and engineers to apply their models and methods to address targeted biological problems, such as developing models of cell and tissue-level processes, and new methods for measuring and controlling biomolecular interactions.
