500 In Vitro and In Vivo Organ Engineering

Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 12:30 PM
Somerset East (Westin )
This session will address the engineering of organs for either in vivo organ replacement and in vitro testing platforms. This session invites submissions beyond "cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions" and "stem cells" and that are specifically directed towards the formation of more complex tissue collections and organs. Submissions are encouraged that compare engineered organs to clinical and/or animal studies.
