Room 217 D

Recent Advances in Surface Modificaion of Biomaterials


A variety of technologies including but not limited to grafting, plasma treatment, silanization, self-assembled monolayers, layer-by-layer multilayer polyelectrolytes, physical and chemical vapor deposition methods, ion beam implantation, PEGylation, and surface modifying additives are commonly used to modify the surface of biomaterials. This general session will cover the recent advances in these technologies. Also, this session will cover the novel surface modification technologies for a variety of biomedical applications such as high-speed cell sorting, cell capturing, cell sheet engineering, patterning, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, degradation resistance, nonfouling, peptide and other biomolecule immobilization, preventing bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation, osseointegration, reducing thrombogenicity, lubricity, biosensing, and tissue engineering.
