Leading technical solutions at biointerfaces

Member Benefits

Our Mission

The Surfaces in Biomaterials Foundation is dedicated to exploring creative solutions to technical challenges by fostering education and cooperation among industrial, academic, clinical and regulatory communities.

The Annual BioInterface Workshop and Symposium brings together surface science leaders for three days of sharing breakthroughs in ideas, products and services. The networking alone pays off for attendees through building current and new relationships.

Supporting members benefit not only from substantial discounts to the BioInterface Conference, but also have a voice in the development of the topics for presentations and determining who will serve on the Board of Directors to shape the future of the Foundation.

Members can search the Surfaces in Biomaterials Foundation member directory by logging in.

Why Join?

Hello friends! I am a Principal Scientist at Medtronic Corporate in the Microscopy and Surface Analysis Group specializing in surface and interfaceanalysis of materials. I attended my first BioInterface Symposium in 2011 and immediately enjoyed the smaller, more intimate setting that encouraged interaction between attendees, presenters, and exhibitors. Since then, I became an active member and held various leadership roles including chairing technical sessions and board positions (Treasurer, President).

The industry focused topics are directly relevant to my career and offers a fun and exciting way to stay informed of new technologies and current challenges in the medical device industry. SIBF offers many opportunities for eager and energetic individuals. Please contact me or for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!

Bill Theilacker, Medtronic Corporate
