Biomimetic Materials for Tissue Engineering 2


Recently, biomaterial scientists have added bioactivity to their design toolbox in the development of new materials. These advanced biomaterials add another dimension of guided interaction with the body by mimicking the native remodeling processes (e.g., biological recognition, adhesion sites, substrate-dictated differentiation or cell-guided enzymatic degradation). This session will review current state-of-the-art processes in the development of biomimetic materials and the fundamental studies that use these materials to identify key substrate characteristics that support desired cell behavior.
