137 Engineering Cells and Microenvironments for Tissues

Monday, November 9, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
151A/B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session focuses on approaches for engineering cells and microenvironments for tissue engineering applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: engineered microenvironments to control cell differentiation and function, chemical and mechanical cues for guiding cell phenotype, novel agents to promote cell differentiation and function, and co-culture systems for the development of complex tissues.
