B: Biomaterials

This Topic addresses the growing interest of science and industry in the synthesis, characterization, testing, and application of biomaterials, as well as their closely related areas of medical devices, drug delivery and tissue engineering. The motivation is not only the recent scientific progress in biomedical materials but also the new challenges of this exciting and strongly interdisciplinary field of science and engineering.

Materials scientists, physicists, chemists and biologists in industrial R&D, as well as medical professionals are increasingly facing situations where materials are confronted with high performance requirements and a challenging biological environment at the same time.
