Biomaterials for Regenerative Engineering – RAPID FIRE

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm
Room: Waterview Ballroom, Ground Level


Regenerative engineering aims to develop functional, bioactive, and instructive biomaterials and approaches for the regeneration of tissues through a convergence of engineering, medicine, developmental biology, and stem cell science. This symposium will highlight recent trends in developing functional biomaterials that play an active role in controlling cellular behaviors and tissue regeneration. We will include different classes of biomaterials such as proteins, polysaccharides, synthetic polymers, fibers, metals, ceramics, and hydrogels for applications in regenerative engineering. This session will also highlight the biomaterials that can direct cell fate and promote differentiation. Moreover, the biomaterials that can facilitate drug delivery and immunomodulation will be covered through oral and poster presentations. During the symposium, translational strategies for handling these biomaterials from ‘Bench to Bedside’ will also be addressed. We expect that our interdisciplinary session, including material science, chemistry, biology, engineering, and medicine, will be of great significance to clinicians, industry members, and academia.
