Abstract

Research at the interface between bioengineering and nanotechnology presents exciting opportunities for creating novel materials that can have a significant impact, both scientifically and commercially. This new field is characterized by its multidisciplinary nature, cutting across science, engineering and medicine. This work describes how research in biomaterials and nanotechnology comes together to bring about novel materials and processes to tackle challenges in drug delivery, protein adsorption, tissue engineering, artificial implants and nanobiotechnology. It discusses the importance of designing nanoscale features and in particular surface reactivity for deriving unique systems with tailored properties, and illustrates the significance of controlling multiple length scales in fabricating hierarchical structures, and the flexibility of nanocomposite processing in creating complex materials with multiple functionalities.
