Biointerfaces International Conference (BIC) 2024 Biointerfaces International Conference (BIC) 2024

FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, ZHAW Institute of Chemistry and Biotechnology,

Now in its 5th edition, the Biointerfaces International Conference is a three-day event that brings together scientists, industrial and clinical representatives.  Building on a rich tradition of hosting the event in Zürich, the 2024 edition of the conference is headed to a new location in Muttenz, taking advantage of networking and technology strengths that Basel, Switzerland’s pharmaceutical capital, has to offer. The scientific excellence and diverse program that attendees appreciate will remain unchanged.

Learn about exciting science and technologies across experimental and computational disciplines in the Biointerfaces community, from Swiss and international research teams in academia, hospitals and industry. The three-day program will be preceded by a pre-conference seminar for early career scientists.


Session topics for the 2024 edition will include:

  • mRNA therapeutics
  • Immune disease interfaces
  • Biosensing and diagnostics
  • Mechanobiology and mechanoimmunology
  • Biomaterials
  • Bioprinting and biofabrication

We will explore these topics through a variety of lenses:

  • Science to market: products and technologies being developed by start-ups, SMEs and large companies. Can include R&D collaborations, challenges along the development pathway, regulatory.
  • Labs of the future: computation, lab automation, digital twins, and virtual/augmented reality
  • Formats: Invited and contributed talks, panel discussions, speaker debates, and posters
