This event will feature an agenda of talks from prominent members of industry, alumni and UW faculty communities, student activities and the annual Allan S. Hoffman Lecture.

The presenter of this year’s Hoffman Lecture is the event’s namesake, Allan S. Hoffman, UW Bioengineering professor emeritus. The event celebrates Dr. Hoffman’s career of leadership in biomaterials science.

Dr. Hoffman is known is an international “ambassador for biomaterials.” He pioneered applications of temperature and pH-responsive intelligent polymers and hydrogels in the fields of drug delivery, diagnostic assays and biologically-active and non-fouling polymer surfaces.  Dr. Hoffman joined the UW faculty in 1970. Learn more about Dr. Hoffman.
