Design considerations in the development of wound healing bionanomaterials

Parvez AlamUniversity of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United KingdomAbo Akademi University, Turku, Finland

Abstract

Currently, there exists a concerted effort toward the development of wound healing bionanomaterials. Bionanomaterials often exhibit integrated qualities of biocompatibility with the human body that can be bioactivated to exacerbate cellular proliferation, or to control cellular morphology. This chapter describes fundamental considerations in the design of such bionanomaterials with a focus on skin properties, material types, surface structures, and methods for nanofabrication.
