*BTI* From Conception to Clinical Trial: Examples of Technology Development

Timeslot: Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Career and Commercialization
Room: Grand Ballroom B


The session seeks to illustrate the entire development cycle of biomaterials-based technologies from conception to the clinic. The aim is to give the audience perspective on the development process through specific examples with supporting data. Presenters from industry and academia/healthcare settings are welcome. Talks may be of extended duration (20 mins) and could be presented by a single speaker or two speakers (a scientist/engineer and a clinician to separately present the pre-clinical and clinical outcomes).
