Immunomodulatory Biomaterials 1

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 10:45am to 12:15pm
Track: Immunomodulatory Biomaterials
Room: Virtual


The session will focus on engineered biomaterials for therapeutic immune modulation. Specifically, the session will cover topics ranging from biomaterials for delivery of immunomodulators and imaging agents, scaffolds for immunomodulation, cell‐based therapies, etc. Several cutting edge immune engineering platforms will be included.
