Developing Better Biomaterials: Advances in Technologies and Understanding of Surface Modification

Timeslot: Friday, April 5, 2019 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Functional Biomaterials and Surfaces
Room: Yakima 1


Surface modification has become a routine procedure in designing and developing bio-friendly implants for orthopedic, dental and pacemaker applications as well as other biosensing applications. The surface of a biomaterial affects its performance in a host environment. Many techniques have been utilized to modify the surfaces of biomaterials to obtain innovative or improved properties (e.g. mechanical, biocompatible, corrosion-resistant, and biological responsive) through modification of physicochemical interactions between the biomaterial and the biological environment at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels. In this session, recent advances in surface modification technologies and characterization, biomaterial-tissue interactions at the interface, and basic and translational studies of surface modified biomaterials will be solicited and presented.
