Functional Biomaterials

Papers within this session will highlight work involving the design of materials that interact and respond to their biological environment. Relevant topics include materials that provide biologically active signals for cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis; materials that degrade or exhibit a change in mechanical properties in response to changes in the tissue composition, materials that respond to a cellular stimulus, and materials that transform from one state to another state in response to a biological signal. The prediction and control of the material structure that can sense biological demand or cause a change in the biological environment will be the leading theme of this session.



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