491 Biomaterials for Drug and Gene Delivery

Wednesday, November 19, 2014: 12:30 PM
International 7 (Marriott Marquis Atlanta)
This session will cover novel design principles that govern biomaterial selection for drug and gene delivery applications with particular focus on how biomaterial properties (e.g. mechanical properties, chemical composition, degradation kinetics, micro/nano-structure, etc.) influence the delivery efficiency. Possible topics include, but are not limited to stimuli-sensitive or targeted delivery, enhancement of delivery/transfection efficiency via specific biomaterial properties and the influence of biomaterial properties on intracellular trafficking and/or transport of drugs or nucleic acids.
