Biomaterials include the development and application of any molecules and materials that interfaces with a biological system. These augmented substances include anything from engineering materials such as metal or plastic for prosthesis to cell scaffolds that permit cell growth and repair tissues. There is a wide range of biomaterials from synthetic to naturally derived that can be designed and tailored for specific biological applications, including drug delivery and nanomedicine.
