12 - Health & Technology
Assembling New Biomedical Materials for Tissue Regeneration (#284)

Tissue regeneration is a paradigm that is emerging in health care for the treatment of diseased and damaged tissues. Traditionally medical implants have been available to replace certain tissues, for example by use of artificial heart valves, artificial hip and knee prostheses and artificial blood vessels. Tissue regeneration seeks to develop materials and material-cell constructs that will enable or persuade the body to heal and repair itself, through recruiting, programming and localizing cells to their target tissue. The use of biomaterials as cell carriers or cells aggregates, especially cell sheets, have distinct advantages compared to direct injection of suspensions of cells for regenerative therapies. These strategies open up enormous possibilities to meet specific unmet clinical needs, especially for the repair of diseased or damaged organs and functional tissues. This symposium will focus on development of new materials and surfaces, as cell carriers and for production of cell sheets and the applications of these materials and cell constructs. The development of these advanced materials and cell-material constructs requires an integrated multidisciplinary approach, which has a strong chemical input. The Symposium will also examine the importance of the levels of intrinsic information content of materials in a tissue regeneration system, and how this can this influence the extent of regeneration of native tissue structure and function as opposed to production of fibrous tissue lacking key functionality. Papers will be selected to cover the breadth of options for improving construct performance for tissue regeneration. Some of the factors that are important and can impact on cell functionality and tissue formation that will drive the selection of suitable papers include: the effects of varying compliance; the effects of topology variation; the role of-self assembly in scaffold formation; the effects of the extent of the hydration shell that surrounds the scaffold; the physical state and role of pores in a scaffold; the extent of biological modification.
