Molecular Mechanisms Governing Protein-Surface and Cell-Surface Interactions

Room 218 B/219 B

Molecular Mechanisms Governing Protein-Surface and Cell-Surface Interactions

Scope

At a fundamental level, protein-surface and cell-surface interactions are governed by molecular interactions, which are still not well understood. This level of understanding is extremely important for the evolving field of molecular engineering, as well as for tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug-delivery systems and implantable medical devices. New and improved methods are needed and being developed to probe and understand these interactions. This proposed general session will look to present state-of-the art methods (both experimental and molecular simulation) that are being developed and applied to study, characterize and understand the molecular basis governing protein-surface and cell-surface interactions and how these interactions may ultimately affect the success of a variety of device-based therapies.
