Next-Gen Tissue Adhesives and Clinical Applications

Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Functional Biomaterials and Surfaces
Room: Yakima 1


There is an urgent need for tissue adhesives that can provide convenient and simple methods to seal wounds and affix medical devices on and in the body. While there are multiple types of adhesives under development, the need remains critical and there exists a wide gap between what academic labs are producing and what clinicians need. This session is intended to close the gap by engaging researchers in multiple sectors - including chemists and biomaterials experts, companies, and clinicians to present the latest innovations and challenges that remain
