About Us

The scope of the Canadian Biomaterials Society-Kingston Student Chapter (CBS-KSC) is to support and enhance student research, education and interest in biomaterials and related fields. One of its missions is to assist the Canadian Biomaterials Society in approaching its development objectives in biomaterial science, technology, and education in Canadian universities, industry, and government. CBS-KSC is not-for-profit and all activities are on a voluntary basis.

The main purpose of this chapter is to develop networking between people who work in biomaterials and related fields in Kingston area. The student members of the CBS-KSC will be the main players in the establishment of a strong network, through the organization of educational, informative and social events.
