Biomaterials have had a major impact on the practice of
contemporary medicine and patient care. Growing into a major
interdisciplinary effort involving chemists, biologists, engineers,
and physicians, biomaterials development has enabled the creation
of high-quality devices, implants, and drug carriers with greater
biocompatibility and biofunctionality. The fast-paced research and
increasing interest in finding new and improved biocompatible or... more...
