Introduction to Biomimetic Materials

Modern biomaterials are a key component of successful tissue regeneration strategies. The importance of biomaterials has been demonstrated in both clinical devices and experimental biomaterials as vehicles for the delivery of drugs and biologics, structural reinforcements, as well as templates for tissue growth (Ratner and Bryant 2004, – Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society). Consequently, many advances in regenerative medicine have been correlated with improvements in biomaterial performance. Recent developments in the field of advanced biomaterials, such as cell-mediated morphogen release and in situ material formation(such as for cell encapsulation), indicate that biomaterials are critical for integrating the other components of tissue engineering into effective systems for properly controlling tissue production. Advances in polymer chemistry, chemical biology, and bioconjugate...
