Welcome to the Waterloo Composite Biomaterial Systems Lab

What are Composite Biomaterial Systems?

Composite:

Made up of multiple parts/phases.

Biomaterial:

  • A naturally-derived material, such as human tissue (e.g. bone, cartilage, tendon, etc.).
  • A material developed for biomedical applications (e.g. implantable biomaterials for the reconstruction of bone).

Systems:

Representative of our approach to research and development.

  1. Apr. 14, 2019New paper in Materials & Design - Congrats to Aram Bahmani and Patricia Comeau

    This is some of the latest research from the Waterloo Composite Biomaterial Systems Laboratory. Congrats to Aram Bahmani and Patricia Comeau for their excellent work!

    "Extrudable hydroxyapatite/plant oil-based biopolymer nanocomposites for biomedical applications: Mechanical testing and modeling" by Bahmani, Comeau, Montesano and Willett.

  2. Apr. 14, 2019Congratulations to Dr. Patricia Comeau for her recent paper accepted to Macromolecular Materials and Engineering

    Congratulations to Dr. Patricia Comeau, Research Associate and Laboratory Manager in the Waterloo Composite Biomaterial Systems Laboratory, for her paper "Printability of Methacrylated Gelatin Upon Inclusion of a Chloride Salt and Hydroxyapatite Nano-particles", which as recently accepted for publication in the journal Macromolecular Materials and Engineering.

  3. Jan. 13, 2019Congratulations to Mr. Aram Bahmani for his second paper accepted for publication Composite Structures

    Congratulations to Mr. Aram Bahmani for his second paper accepted for publication in the journal Composite Structures. The paper is titled "Three-dimensional micromechanical assessment of bio-inspired composites with non-uniformly dispersed inclusions". Aram recently completed with MASc degree in the CBSL and was co-supervised by Prof. John Montesano (MME).
