632 Biomaterials for Drug Delivery

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
251A (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session will cover novel design principles that govern biomaterial selection for drug and 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 efficiency via specific biomaterial properties and the influence of biomaterial properties on intracellular trafficking and/or transport of drugs.
