There is an ever increasing demand on the development of new innovative materials, not only as part of the industrial infrastructure, but also to drive forth the advancement of the scientific and technological front. Especially, field of biomaterials science is progressing steady and spreading versatile directions. In order to improve basic biomaterials science and its frontier, TIMCS - Summer School of Biomaterials Science-, which will be held in University of Tsukuba in Tsukuba is organized. This school is consist of two parts: 1) educational course of fundamental biomaterials science, and 2) minisymposium on advanced bionanomaterials science. Five educational lectures and 8 advanced lectures are scheduled. Poster presentations will be programmed.
