Continental 9 (Hilton San Francisco)
#182 - Disease Therapies and Diagnostics (15D02)
The intersection of engineering and biology has facilitated many recent medical advances. This session seeks submissions that address engineering advancements towards the diagnosis and treatment of disease via the implementation of novel techniques, materials, or processes or the novel application of established techniques or materials. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, innovations in drug design, drug targeting, high throughput screening, biosensors, biomaterials, genetic engineering, and proteomics.
