Biomaterials

The major application of biomaterials is to create artificial organs using biological materials for patients that need organ transplants. Biomedical engineers are currently researching methods of creating such organs with blood compatibility, biocompatibility, reduced toxicity and no localized tissue response to the implant. Biomaterials is a term used to indicate materials such as metals, polymers and ceramics that constitute parts of medical implants, extracorporeal devices and medical disposables which has inherent potential to regenerate the damaged tissues.
