Translational Orthopedic Biomaterials: Progress and Challenges *BTI*

Timeslot: Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 1:45pm to 3:15pm
Room: Virtual


There are increasing demands for biomaterials that are responsive to local stimuli, and/or play multiple biological roles in a single application. The recent developments and breakthroughs of biomaterials with multiple biological functions and those that may contribute to COVID-9 treatments will be reported along with the challenges and translational studies. Progress in biomaterials like metals (including degradable materials), ceramics, and polymers for orthopedic applications will be highlighted. Technology and commercial challenges are also welcome to be presented. Mixed presentations from the U.S., Canada, Europe, and other countries are expected.
