In recent years there have been tremendous advances in the fields of chemistry, physics and biology which have a direct impact on advances in biomaterials science. Many areas of healthcare depend upon the development of vel biomaterials. This book contains contribution from scientists who have made numerous invative and exciting advances in the field of biomedical materials. The latest advances in the field are covered including studies of cell interactions with biomaterials. The assessment of the potential applications for the development of new biomaterials, tissue engineering and future medical devices are discussed. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in the field and the vision for the future. The book clearly illustrates how basic and applied research are being combined to produce vel biomaterials.
