Biomaterials for Regenerative Engineering Rapid Fire

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 3:15pm to 4:45pm
Track: Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
Room: Chelan 4


Due to disease, degeneration, or trauma, there is a tremendous need to repair damaged tissues and organs. Although surgical replacement can be performed to address this issue, the insufficient number of donors greatly limits the applicability of this approach. Therefore, it is essential to develop engineered multifunctional biomaterials to promote tissue regeneration. Regenerative engineering combines biomaterial-based approaches with stem cell therapies and developmental biology to regenerate or repair tissues and organs. This session will cover tunable biocompatible materials such as hydrogels, fibers, proteins, carbohydrates, nano/micro-porous scaffolds, and metals, to modulate cellular microenvironments. The biomaterials that can direct cell fate and promote differentiation will also be highlighted by this session. Moreover, the biomaterials that can facilitate drug delivery and immunomodulation will be covered through oral and poster presentations. Furthermore, we will include discussions for the development and commercialization of various medical devices such as blood contacting implants, prostheses, and pacemakers in the session. In addition to engineering approaches, we will also provide discussions on clinical translation of biomaterial-based strategies. We expect that our interdisciplinary session including material science, chemistry, biology, engineering, and medicine will be of great significance to the clinicians, industry members and professors in academia.
