Engineered Biomaterials for Neural Applications 2

Timeslot: Friday, April 23, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Track: Sensory Biomaterials and Tissues
Room: Virtual


Engineered biomaterials are uniquely positioned for use in creating, testing, and regenerating neural tissue with applications like in vitro models of injury and disease, therapeutic treatments, understanding neural development, and mapping the brain. This session will focus on cutting edge research in neural biomaterials including fundamental material development through pre-clinical studies. These include big questions surrounding diseases and injuries of the peripheral and central nervous systems spanning neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, microglia, and Schwann cells.
