Biomaterial Technologies for Hemostatis and Wound Care

Timeslot: Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Wound Healing and Cellular Microenvironment
Room: 208/209


Stopping bleeding (hemostasis) and providing short and long-term wound care via passive and/or bioactive mechanisms is an important area of biomaterials-based technologies and includes external, intracavitary and intravascular hemostats, dressings, powders, foams, fibers and gels. The goal of this session is to highlight recent advances in hemostatic biomaterials and to facilitate discussion of best practices for moving hemostatic technologies from the benchtop to the clinic. The proposed session will invite presentations from researchers in this field that discuss biomaterials design, structure-property-function relationships, and achieved/ongoing/future visions of technology translation pathways. An emphasis will be placed on translational aspects of hemostatic technologies.
