Nanoscale design in biomineralization for developing new biomaterials for bone tissue engineering (BTE)

G.M. Luz and J.F. Mano,    University of Minho, Portugal

Abstract:

New advances in bone tissue engineering (BTE) demand the development of materials that can not only replace bone, but also regenerate the damaged tissue based on external or even internal stimulus. Researchers are being inspired by bone’s extraordinary hierarchical architecture and also by the natural mineralization process to develop new devices and materials. In this chapter, recent advances in nanoscale design in biomineralization towards the development of new biomaterials for BTE are presented. The importance of designing the materials at the nanoscale is highlighted ...
