The Preclinical and Clinical Experience with Regenerative Biomaterials

Timeslot: Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 1:45pm to 3:45pm
Track: Tissue Engineering
Room: Grand Ballroom D


Regenerative Engineering is the convergence of advanced materials science, stem cell and developmental biology, physical sciences, and clinical translation to develop innovative, scalable tools to regenerate damaged or diseased complex tissues and organs. This symposium will include presentations that describe how biomaterials inspired from the fields of nanotechnology, cell and molecular biology, and medicine can improve health. The session will cover how clinical translation may/should drive biomaterial design by fostering discussion among clinician/scientists, engineers, and representatives from companies with interest in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
