Wednesday, November 15, 2006: 3:15 PM-5:45 PM
Yerba Buena Ballroom 4 (Marriott San Francisco)
#431 - Biomimetics I (08B15)
This session is devoted to investigations involving materials that have been developed to reflect the structure of naturally derived substances. Participants are requested to present studies describing novel functionalized biomaterials, modified naturally derived materials, and synthetic/natural material composites for controlling cell or tissue behavior.
