Union Square 23 (Hilton San Francisco)
#204 - Self-Assembled Biomaterials (01C13)
This session will be devoted to work describing the self-assembly of biomaterials from polymers, amphiphiles, and particles. The building blocks may be either synthetic or biological in origin, but the conceived application for the eventual material should relate to medicine or biotechnology. Topics of interest include the assembly of microcapsules and nanocapsules for drug delivery, the assembly of gels or scaffolds for tissue engineering and wound healing, and the design of tailored surfaces for cell growth.
