Yerba Buena Ballroom 3 (Marriott San Francisco)
#532 - Biomaterials for Drug Delivery I (08B02)
This session will cover the design and utilization of biomaterials for drug delivery applications with particular focus on how biomaterial properties (e.g. mechanical properties, chemical composition, degradation kinetics, micro/nano-structure, etc.) match the specific drug delivery application. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, stimuli-sensitive or targeted delivery, enhancement of transfection efficiency with specific biomaterial properties, novel biomaterials for macromolecular delivery, and influence of biomaterials on intracellular trafficking or transport of drugs.
