Biomaterials for Regenerative Engineering 3

Timeslot: Friday, April 29, 2022 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Room: Harborside Ballroom A-B, 4th Floor


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.
