Jupiter, FL—
Advancements with Ted Danson will examine the role biomaterials play in healthcare innovation in a new segment, airing Saturday, May 20, at 8:00 pm ET, on Bloomberg.

Audiences will learn how both the cell and gene therapy and medical device industries leverage biomaterials—synthetic or natural materials that can be engineered to interact and integrate with the human body—to facilitate critical health technology advancements.

With a look at Solesis, the series will explore how biocontainers facilitate the development and manufacturing of advanced therapies that can potentially cure cancer, and how textiles used in implantable medical devices are providing long-term solutions for cardiovascular, orthopedic, and other conditions.
