Room 213 B/C

Bio-Inspired Cellular Microenvironments

Scope

Natural materials exhibit highly sophisticated properties selected by evolution to efficiently achieve specific functions. As engineers, biological scientists and physicians strive to recapitulate natural biological processes, they increasing rely on bio-inspired approaches. These strategies have been implemented in the rational design of biomedical devices and biomaterials both to influence cellular interactions with biomaterials and modulate immune response. This session covers the latest bio-inspired strategies to modulate biological responses to materials.
