The purpose of the Advanced Functional Polymers for Medicine (AFPM) conference series is to strengthen the interactions within the community of chemists, material engineers, physicists, biologists and clinicians in the development of polymers and polymer-based systems in the fields of drug delivery, regenerative medicine, diagnostics and related application fields.

The current status, challenges and requirements for future developments of polymers for medicine are presented by leading experts with an academic and industrial background. The conference provides an outstanding opportunity to help young scientists in their career development and offers them an interdisciplinary discussion forum within an exclusive circle.

The AFPM 2024 conference offers delegates innovative and stimulating topics with a well-balanced programme of invited speakers and poster presentations.
