Opthalmic Biomaterials (SIG)

Timeslot: Friday, April 29, 2022 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Room: Laurel C-D, 4th Floor


The Ophthalmic Biomaterials SIG Session welcomes submissions that describe the development and/or testing of biomaterials for use in ophthalmology. This may include drug delivery strategies or cell-based approaches, regenerative medicine applications, or unique animal models that have a primary focus in preserving or restoring the form and/or function of the eye. Abstracts from related areas of research with strong applicability in the visual system may also be submitted for this SIG Session.


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