Biomaterials for Cardiovascular Regeneration

Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Cardiovascular Biomaterials
Room: Yakima 2


To develop new treatment strategies for cardiovascular diseases, some of the challenges include vascularization of synthetic tissues, renewable cell sources, biomaterials that have similar features to the native cardiovascular tissues, and efficacy in preclinical models. In this session, we will cover topics ranging from emerging biomaterials, injectable hydrogels, strategies of vascularization of engineered constructs, and advances in cardiovascular tissue engineering that have shown progress into clinical translation. Topics of interest include vascular grafts, valves, cardiac patches, and stem cell therapeutics.


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