Biomaterials for Cardiovascular Regeneration

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Track: Tissue Engineering
Room: Grand Ballroom C


In recent years, significant effort has been devoted to developing efficient therapeutic strategies for repair and regeneration of cardiovascular injures. In this regard, biomaterials have played an imperative role in successful delivery of cells and therapeutic compounds as well as in engineering of native like cardiovascular tissue substitutes. To develop proper treatment strategies for CVD, some of the challenges include vascularization of synthetic tissues, renewable cell sources, biomaterials that have similar features to the native cardiovascular tissues, and efficacy in preclinical models. In this session, we will include topics ranging from emerging biomaterials, strategies of vascularization of engineered constructs, and advances in cardiovascular tissue engineering that have shown progress in preclinical settings.
