Welcome Message

As the current president of society, it is my proud privilege and honor to welcome you all to visit the SBAOI website and to know more about one of the world’s largest biomaterials societies. SBAOI works at the forefront of biomaterials science and technology, while providing an interdisciplinary platform to stimulate innovation and translation of biomaterials, implants, and biomedical devices.

After taking over as President of SBAOI, I proposed the constitution of a number of committees, which were approved at the first executive committee meeting. We invite all the members of the SBAOI to provide suggestions to various committee conveners or members regularly.

We look forward to the active contribution from all the society members. With your continuous suggestions, I trust that SBAOI will be more impactful as a professional society.

Please stay safe and well.


President's Vision

At SBAOI, we will remain committed to discuss many unanswered issues at the challenging interface of Engineering, Biology, and Medicine. In particular, my vision is,

a) to enhance the global outreach of SBAOI and particularly to nurture biomaterials activities in South Asian countries
b) to promote diversity and inclusiveness in SBAOI activities
c) to make SBAOI a more useful platform to young researchers and biomaterials professionals
d) to establish stronger linkages with stakeholders, industry professionals, and clinicians.

I believe that the outcome of the professional activities of SBAOI will intensify the development of the next-generation biomaterials and biomedical implants, which will enhance healthcare quality in India and many developing nations around the world.
