Biodegradable and Bio-reactive Smart Materials

Timeslot: Friday, April 29, 2022 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Room: Kent A-C, 4th Floor


Has the future arrived where implantable biomaterials degrade on cue or materials adapt to the physical, chemical and/or mechanical environment? Do they react to physiological stimuli to assist with treatment? This could be scaffolds that stay or go depending on the need in the local environment. It could be materials that get stronger with exercise. It could be drug delivery only as needed based on physiological triggers. If you have been working on bioactive, biodegradable, or reactive biomaterials at any stage of research then submit an abstract for this session. Those abstracts that can show variation in modification of the behavior of the material for a clinical purpose have the best chance of being accepted.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 27, 2022.
