Peptide and Peptoid Based Materials



Zha, R., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Chen, X., City College of New York
Yang, R., Cornell University

This session will highlight recent activities in the field of biomimetic materials. Topics include coordinating molecular recognition and interactions to design biological, biohybrid, and artificial materials that are structurally or functionally similar to biological structures. In particular, the focus of this session is on systems that mimic well-understood biological and biomolecular principles. We invite topics with emphasis in drug delivery; controlling cell adhesion behavior; tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; interfacial science and engineering; and materials science that involves materials consisting of (i) natural biological molecules and/or unnatural molecules that have been assembled/synthesized by biological systems; (ii) hybrid structures of synthetic and natural biological molecules; or (iii) materials consisting of man-made and/or in vitro building blocks. 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.
