Thought Leader Symposia

In an effort to infuse the program with input and perspective from recognized leaders in their fields, the Program Committee has invited several thought leaders from various disciplines to contribute sessions of their own design to the 2017 Annual Meeting:

Anna Belu, PhD (Medtronic) & Nathan Lockwood, PhD (University of Minnesota): Industrial Applications of Biosurface Modification and Analysis
Joachim Kohn, PhD (Rutgers University): Opportunities for Biomaterials Science in the Era of Materiomics
Cato Laurencin, MD, PhD (University of Connecticut) – Orthopedics and Regeneration
Fred Schoen, MD, PhD (Harvard Medical School): Understanding, Preventing and Reacting to Medical Device Failure: A Practical Approach
Molly Shoichet, PhD (University of Toronto): Neural Regeneration

More information about these sessions will be posted here as it becomes available.
