Chemical Engineers as Biomedical Innovators
- Type: Archived Webinar
The design of biomedical materials is rooted in principles of chemical engineering. This presentation describes the connections between chemical engineering and biomedical innovations, and discusses the translation of novel materials into clinical applications. The talk draws on several examples of engineering contributions to medical devices, including tissue adhesives for wound closure, nanoparticles for drug delivery, and degradable stents for coronary artery disease. The presentation also includes a discussion of the global burden of disease, to give chemical engineers an appreciation for the greatest unmet needs in medicine.
