Cardiovascular Biomaterials

Timeslot: Friday, April 13, 2018 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Tissue Engineering
Room: 206/207


Cardiovascular therapies harness biomaterials for optimizing biocompatibility, releasing drugs and as scaffolds for tissue regeneration. The session will provide a forum for research on the development and assessment of cardiovascular biomaterial applications across this entire spectrum.
