The IUSBSE is a body that brings together national and multi-national groups dedicated to the advancement of biomaterials, surgical implants, prosthetics, artificial organs, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. It currently includes members from Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, South America and The United States of America. It was formerly known as the International Liaison Committee of Societies for Biomaterials (ILC) in 1980. In 1998, it passed the new regulations and officially registered "International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering" in the U.S.A.. Its mission is monitoring of progress in organization of World Biomaterials Congresses ensuring scientific excellence and designation of fellows, biomaterials science and engineering.

Prof. TANG Benzhong
Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences
South China University of Technology, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Prof. Tang coined the concept of aggregation-induced emission (AIE), which overturns the general belief of aggregation-caused quenching of traditional fluorophores and spearheads the AIE research worldwide. The AIE luminogens have been widely applied in the fields of biosensors, bioimaging and diagnosis, and show distinct advantages over traditional fluorophores.
