The NBTE will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year!

To mark this historic occasion, a special issue in Bioactive Materials (impact factor 14.12) will be dedicated to the research work within the NBTE and will focus on highlighting the latest findings and trends in the field in The Netherlands.


The collection of accepted manuscripts can be found below (update 8/11/21).
