Biomaterials are vital to medicine, healthcare and the world as we know it. From medical implants to tissue engineering and drug delivery, many things have been designed from sets of materials that work well with the human body. At FAU, we believe that with some clever engineering and innovation, we can make them even better. Research groups use approaches from biochemistry, molecular genetics and bioinformatics to study and model basic physiological and pathophysiological principles as well as design nanostructured biomaterials and bioactive materials. Mechanical models for tissues will improve the early diagnostics of pathological conditions, advance treatment and regeneration strategies, reduce the necessity of animal and human tissue experimentation, and open new pathways in the biofabrication of artificial organs and prosthetics.
