From Bench-to-Bedside: Translating Biomaterials Research *BTI* 1

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Track: Industry
Room: Yakima 1


The session will provide a podium for industry researchers developing innovative biomaterials-based technologies to give the audience perspective on the development process through specific examples. Special emphasis will be placed on the emerging field of Intracochlear Drug and Cell Delivery including an invited presentation that will provide an overview of the physio local barriers to such therapies.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 3, 2019.
