Nanomaterials / Drug Delivery Rapid Fire

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 3:15pm to 4:45pm
Track: Therapeutic Delivery
Room: Skagit 3


Efficient delivery of therapeutics (including small or macromolecular drugs, biomolecules such as proteins or nucleotides, or engineered cells) is important to stimulate repair or regeneration of damaged or diseased tissues. Synthetic nanoengineered materials can be tailored for therapeutic delivery to cells and tissues for a range of biomedical applications. By modulating the physiochemical characteristics of nanomaterials, we can customize therapeutic efficacy, cellular internalization, biodistribution, and in vivo retention. This session will focus on emerging approaches to the design advanced nanomaterials for therapeutic delivery. These multidisciplinary approaches include modifications of synthetic and natural polymers with variety of chemistries, including click chemistry or supramolecular chemistries. Of special interest to this session are nanoscale engineered solutions for delivery of small and macro-molecule drugs, large therapeutic proteins and nucleotides for applications in regenerative medicine, stem cell engineering, immune modulation, antimicrobial, cardiovascular diseases and cancer therapeutics (in addition to the interactions of these nanoscale therapeutics in the body).
