Panel Discussion: Progress and Challenges in Basic Science and Translation of Orthopaedic Biomaterial-Associated Infections

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 10:30am to 12:30pm

Room 217 A

Panel Discussion: Progress and Challenges in Basic Science and Translation of Orthopaedic Biomaterial-Associated Infections

Scope

Orthopedic surgeons and scientists have recognized biomaterial-associated infection as one of the most serious clinical complications. This panel will include infection experts from orthopaedic surgery, infectious disease, microbiology, immunology, bioengineering, and materials science. The panel will examine and discuss the progress, challenging obstacles, future research topics, and education and outreach related to biomaterial-associated infection, and will focus on clinically translatable developments and strategies. The aim of the panel discussions is to expand basic science and clinical knowledge and have a positive impact on patient care.
