Crick Symposium: Engineering & Exploring the Cell-Material Interface

June 26, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 6:10 pm

Understanding how cells interact with surfaces is key to a host of applications in biomedical science from regenerative medicine and drug delivery to biosensors. This multidisciplinary symposium will highlight both exciting advances in engineered biomaterials and in state of the art imaging approaches to enable exploration and engineering of the cell-material interface.
