Bioinspired and Biomimetic Drug Delivery (BBDD) Focus Group Scientific Session
Focus Group Scientific Session
Date/Time: Sunday, July 22, 2018 - 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
This BBDD Focus Group session focuses on the bioinspired and biomimetic strategies for the design of advanced drug delivery systems. Bioinspired methods that involve construction of biological building blocks, or leveraging bio-interactions are being widely implemented to create various delivery formulations. Mimicking the physicochemical and physiological properties of natural particulates, ranging from pathogens to mammalian cells, facilitates control release of therapeutics. This session seeks to introduce cutting edge science and technology in the field, germinating innovations and promoting translations. The inaugural winners of the Bioinspired and Biomimetic Delivery Focus Group Awards, including one Young Investigator and one Student/Post Doc recipient, will present their work in this session.
