Biomimetic Hydrogels for Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering Applications 1

Timeslot: Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 2:45pm to 4:45pm
Room: Kent A-C, 4th Floor


Biomimetic materials draw inspiration from nature for their structure and properties. This session will focus on drug delivery and tissue engineering scaffolds that incorporate bioinspired components for scaffold physical or biological properties. We are soliciting abstracts on research that involves synthetic materials that mimic natural materials or that follow a design motif derived from nature.


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