Biomaterials for Therapeutic Drug Delivery 1

Timeslot: Friday, April 5, 2019 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Therapeutic Delivery
Room: Skagit 2


Controlled release approaches have the potential to effectively treat a variety of medical conditions, while avoiding complications such as off-site toxicity and drug-resistance. Approaches can include localized, depot-based methods as well as targeted, systemic treatments. Controlled drug delivery can result from affinity interactions, bond cleavage, reservoir or diffusion-based control, and/or stimulus-responsive methodologies. This session will focus on the development of these drug delivery systems, which include nano and microparticles, hydrogels, scaffolds, and thin films, for applications including but not limited to regenerative medicine/tissue engineering, cancer, microbial infection, and autoimmune diseases.
