633 Biomaterials for Immunological Applications

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

This session will highlight recent advances in immunological applications of biomaterials. Submissions covering innate and adaptive immune strategies are all welcome. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) novel biomaterial interactions with the immune system, biomaterials for vaccines or antimicrobial applications, immunosuppressive strategies, controlled release of immunomodulatory agents (including antigens, cytokines, chemokines, immunosuppressive agents, etc...), immune cell activation or differentiation strategies, biomimetic strategies, and detection strategies for immune function. Topics in cancer immunotherapy, autoimmune therapy, and generation of tolerance are also desirable.
