Glasses for Medicine and Biotechnology
This session will provide a forum for the discussion of biomedical amorphous materials of all kinds. This symposium will be broad in scope and will include discussions on bioactive (or inert) glasses and glass-ceramics in applications such as tissue scaffolding, pharmaceutical packaging and delivery, biocompatible coatings, surface modifications, sensors, bone and dental cements, and biological systems/surface interactions. Abstracts that combine multiple materials sets with intent to provide functional implantable devices are especially welcome.
