Our society was founded in May 2008 in Ankara, Turkey. We aim to bring together all those interested in the biomaterials and tissue engineering products and the researchers involved in studies on design, development and commercial application of biomaterials and their cell carrying hybrid products. BTES (BDMD in Turkish) is the most important society in Turkey in this field that focuses on increasing the research capacity, interaction and information sharing among its members and the local and international counterparts.
