Advanced Biomaterials

Description:

Biomaterials are synthetic or natural materials designed to interact with the biological system as part of a medical device or to replace or heal any damaged organs or tissues. Biomaterials are materials that are either naturally occurred or can be synthesized. With increased collaboration between engineers, chemists, and biologists, biomaterials science has improved considerably in the last 50 years. While biomaterials were once mistakenly assumed to just include dressing materials or implant structures designed to restore damaged or diseased tissue, they now have a wide range of clinical applications.
