Biomaterials for Drug Delivery: Overcoming Barriers


Kievit, F., University of Nebraska


Fromen, C., University of Delaware
Shukla, A., Brown University
Volpatti, L., University of Chicago

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. We encourage faculty candidates to submit abstracts to the general “Biomaterials and Life Sciences Engineering: Faculty Candidates” session. When considering abstract submission, please note oral presentations may be limited to one per person (presenter) for contributed abstracts to ensure broad programming. 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.



Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
