As advancements in high resolution imaging have given us a deeper understanding of the structural make-up of the human body, so too have developments in generating new materials led to cutting-edge treatments for a wide range of afflictions. Professors Langer and Mller will give us insights into some of their leading-edge work in synthetic materials and imaging and modeling technologies, and how these advances have impacted clinical medicine.
