Welcome to the ICF-BSE
The honorary status of “Fellow, Biomaterials Science and Engineering” (FBSE) was established in April 1992 after the constituent biomaterials societies of the World Biomaterials Congress, now the IUS-BSE, recognized the need for the public recognition of those of their members who have gained a status of excellent professional standing and high achievements in the field of biomaterials science and engineering.
Fellows Membership Donation
We ask all fellows to make an annual membership donation of $49 (USD) or more. This can be done on the Society for Biomaterials (USA) website. They have generously allowed us to use their site to collect the donations.
