Characterization of Materials for Regulatory Submissions

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


As the need for commercially-viable biomaterials grow so does an emphasis on characterization, evaluation, and commercial-scale manufacturing. Designing and developing novel biomaterials with commercial viability in mind from the beginning is key in successfully bringing materials to market. This session will highlight novel characterization approaches as well as discuss current practices in biomaterial evaluations. Presentations will also focus on material evaluation for regulatory submissions and methods of commercial-scale manufacturing. This topic would be helpful for researchers who are interested in developing their materials/devices for translational applications. We will discuss how to translate innovative research into commercial viability with a focus on: • Characterization methods for novel materials • Discussion of current regulatory approaches • Designing materials with the end goal of commercialization
