Cardiovascular Biomaterials 1 (SIG)

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


Cardiovascular therapies harness biomaterials for optimizing biocompatibility, releasing drugs and as scaffolds for tissue regeneration. The session will provide a forum for research on the development and assessment of cardiovascular biomaterial applications across this entire spectrum.
