Biomaterial and Medical Device Development in the Age of Precision Medicine

While precision medicine has been applied primarily in pharmaceutical-based approaches to different disorders, it also is increasingly relevant to biomaterial and medical device development. The panel will discuss ways in which precision medicine principles are guiding research and some of the challenges in translating fundamental innovations from “bench to bedside”. Viewpoints from both academic research and industry will be provided, along with a bioethical perspective.
