Track: Sensory Biomaterials and Tissues
Room: Virtual


The following session will present recent findings and current efforts on nanomaterials, with application emphasis on biomedical imaging and biosensing applications. Molecular imaging is envisioned to play a pivotal role in the early diagnosis and simultaneous treatment of diseases. Recent advances in the imageable nano/ biomaterials as well as imaging modalities have made the preemptive treatment of the diseases and image guided surgery a reality. In this session, presenters will emphasize the role of imageable small molecules, engineered biological entities (e.g. proteins), nanoparticles, and hydrogels in cutting-edge imaging methods. For biosensing applications, the interface of biomaterials and biological fluids offers a unique opportunity for binding, detecting, and reporting the presence of analytes. Recent studies have shown that, by tuning the composition of materials and/or coupling recognitive molecules, it is possible to generate materials with selective affinity for biological analytes. In this session, presenters will highlight recent advancements in biomaterials as components of biosensors, including fundamental and translational studies.
