670 Biomaterials for Drug Delivery II

Thursday, November 17, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Golden Gate 4 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
This session will cover novel design principles that govern biomaterial selection for drug delivery applications with a particular focus on how biomaterial properties (e.g., mechanical properties, chemical composition, degradation kinetics, micro/nano-structure) influence the release profiles and 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. Graduate Students: By applying to this session you may be eligible for the Biomaterials Graduate Student Award Session established to honor the best graduate student submissions through recognition and cash awards. See the session titled “Biomaterials: Graduate Student Award Session” for details.
