Biomaterial-Tissue Interaction 2 (SIG)

Timeslot: Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
Room: Essex A-C, 4th Floor


The Biomaterial-Tissue Interaction SIG session will consider abstracts that investigate, in vitro and in vivo, the effects of biomaterial properties, characteristics or modifications on molecular, cellular, and physiological process. These events initiate with specific interactions between biomaterials and molecules present in tissues after biomaterial implantation, followed by cell biological recognition and activation of cellular processes such as cell attachment, proliferation, activation, polarization, differentiation, and necrosis. Understanding these events is the purpose of the Biomaterial-Tissue Interaction (BTI) Special Interest Group.


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