Room 213 D

Ceramics and Composites in Bone Tissue Engineering and Drug Delivery 2

Scope

This session will provide cutting-edge talks on recent advances in ceramics and ceramic composites used in musculoskeletal regeneration. This symposium fits well in the multifunctional biomaterials design theme area, as recent advances have taken ceramics beyond just a space-filling role and into the realms of hybrid materials that can combinatorially achieve structural and biological functionality. Specific suggested topical areas include the use of biomineralization strategies to achieve biological design goals, protein-controlled inorganic synthesis, design of proteins and peptides to modulate ceramic bioactivity, tethering biomolecules to ceramics to achieve functional specificity, use of ceramics for spatially and temporally controlled drug delivery and nanotechnology approaches to design unique hybrid functions into ceramics.
