Engineering Cells & Their Microenvironments

Room 218 A/219 A

Engineering Cells & Their Microenvironments

Scope

This session is based on the name of the special interest group (SIG) - Engineering Cells & Their Microenvironment (ECTM) and supports the translational bridge in accordance with the theme of the SFB 2015 Annual Meeting - Driving Biomaterial Innovation and the Race to Translation. Cells contain many cues in their microenvironment that need to be considered when understanding their behavior in vivo. The microenvironment contains, but is not limited to, extracellular matrix, autocrine and paracrine factors, ions, growth factors and cytokine-concentration gradients. All such factors are considered for biomaterials design to push the next level of innovation, translating the basic science from cells and their microenvironment into the clinic.
