Symposium K

Delivery Systems for Biomedical and Consumer Care Applications

There is a rapid expansion of new delivery systems for applications in regenerative medicine, environmental regulation, as well as pharmaceuticals and consumer care industries.

This symposium will discuss the development of new delivery platforms for a wide range of bioactive agents such as chemical molecules, peptide, protein, gene, and therapeutic cells.
Potential discussion areas include new material design strategies that enable precise control of release kinetics or improve protection for enhanced stability of the bioactive agents.
