Drug Delivery (SIG) – RAPID FIRE

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm
Room: Harborside Ballroom D-E, 4th Floor


The Drug Delivery SIG session will consider abstracts that fall with the broad areas of therapeutic development, formulation, and application testing. Drug delivery from medical devices, tissue engineering scaffolds/hydrogels, films, microparticles, nanoparticles, environmentally responsive materials, and other types of biomaterial assemblies are all invited. Studies testing drug targeting, drug combinations, and drug/cell combinations are all also welcomed to submit. Drug delivery application areas of interest include but are not limited to regenerative medicine/tissue engineering, cell and tissue transplant, cardiovascular stents and other devices, cancer, microbial infection, and autoimmune diseases.


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